Butterick 6720 - Construction and inside



I have been working on this Butterick 6720 for about two to three weeks.  It has been off and on with life and the holidays.


Here is the line drawing.  My only change is I added one inch to lower the waist.




My fabric is this Mood Fabrics Italian Wool/Cashmere Coating.  It is so amazing and the most expensive fabric I have ever sewn.


This coat has no buttons, just a belt, so I wanted to show you the insides.  I am by no way an expert on any tailoring and thought I would share my online resources.


I found this site Today's Agenda by Gail a couple years back.  It is such an amazing resource for coat making and tailoring, in fact, I printed out the blog posts and put them in a binder.  I used Gail's info to make Vogue 1467


Here are a few more sites that I find helpful


Now there is always books, too

Here is the back

Leave a comment if you want me to list another site, book or class and I will happily add it.

Thanks and yes my coat needs a lint brush!  LOL

Now I am off to work on it.

  1. It's going to be gorgeous. They have already sold out of the blue so people have been clicking through. I am amazed at how much sewing you get done, you should give us some of your time-saving tips.

    1. Thanks, I am so excited. I didn’t order enough of the coating the first time. So I quickly ordered more, so happy I got it! I see almost every night. Dinner, gym and then home to sew a couple hours.

  2. What resources did you use to purchase your horsehair and interfacing?

  4. Thanks for all the resources, Lori. I am about to make my first coat and all the info has my head swimming. As the coat I'm doing is the Butterick 6385, the link to Sew Manju's highlights is incredibly helpful. Wish me luck!
