Description

This is a very special coat I made for my mum to wear to my step sister’s wedding. I used the cocoon coat pattern from Little Woollie and beautiful mottled boiled wool from Dragonfly Fabrics. I love so much about the style of this coat; the dropped shoulder, bracelet length sleeves and espcially the darts around the hem. For a coat it’s pretty straightforward to make, especially as I opted not to line it and instead bind all the seams with a fabric matching the colour of her dress. I’m also really happy with my decision to use a covered button in the same fabric. Full details on the construction and my experience with the pattern can be found on my blog here https://chainstitcher.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/mums-charcoal-boiled-wool-cocoon-coat.html
