Butterick 5401 Finale - picture heavy

The coat is finally finished and I absolutely love it! It took a little over a week to complete and was well worth the effort.



Below are some additional photos of the construction.


Showing the loftiness of the fabric.




Showing the shaped undercollar.


Fabric lightened up for better viewing.


Fleece sleeve heads.


Triple zig-zag stitched taped roll line.


Sleeve seam matching perfectly back side seam. The pattern only had a one-piece sleeve-I converted it to a two-piece sleeve using Threads December 1991/January 1992 issue.



I added this faux belt for some extra styling.




Lining fabric.


Finished notched collar.


This button is from my stash. It measures 1 3/8."


I rounded the front corners at the hem to match the rounded collar.

  1. I love it! Such a wonderfully dressy winter coat and you make it seem so effortless too. If it wasn't so late in my southern winter season I'd copy that baby. Enjoy wearing!
