Description

A slim-cut, knee length coat in wool fabric. I used a Burda 10/2007 pattern for Petites. Initially I used the pattern for a coat for my mom and I liked it so much that made one for myself. I love the plaid silk for lining. Lately I’ve been using silk fabrics for lining instead of polyester. Gives it a feeling of luxury. I love working on coats. Started by just wanting a nice one in 100%wool and I wasn’t willing to pay for ones made with blends with a very small percentage of wool in them.

Material Notes

100% wool, silk for lining, buttons

    How funny, I made excactly the same coat in red! Mine has lightblue lining, but these checks are also nice!

    I think every woman should have a red coat hanging next to her little black dress in the wardrobe!
