We’ve noticed a reoccurring theme this season: Tailored jackets, Victorian twists, and men’s wear translated into a feminine silhouette; we’ve designed our monthly theme around these concepts.

We’ve dug through our archives and are excited to delve into coats that you have created and re-explore our double-breasted Talea jacket. There are so many great examples of how you transformed it into the perfect late winter coat. How about making it out of a bold print or bright red, to make the last weeks of winter fun and fresh? You could also crop the pattern for a shorter, mod look and wear it with a voluminous skirt. It is a classic style that will outlast seasonal trends while providing instant satisfaction!

Here are a couple of How Tos which will help you transform the Talea into your very own:

Talea- Variation 2- Double Breasted Pattern Alteration

Sew a zipper in the Talea coat

Lengthen a pattern

Bound Buttonholes

Gathered Sleeves on Ruched top
