Description

Titled “Classic Notched Collar Coat”, I made a few alterations to this intricate pattern including the addition of dart seams along the front and back panels and removal of the collar, which makes for a laid back and less formal look. I chose a lime green/yellow textured silk jacquard fabric (from none other than Mood Fabrics) which caught my eye with it’s subtly detailed tonal print, that can be truly appreciated upon close examination. To keep things interesting (and bright), I added a bold and playful fabric of a similar geometric print pattern to line the inside of this oversized coat.

Overall, I managed to complete this coat periodically over the course of a week, and I look forward to sporting it during this “transitioning” fall.

      Thanks! Without the collar, it definitely feels less formal, and more fun!
