Dark green wool coat

Frederiksberg, D...






Dark green wool coat, interlined with thinsulate, so I can keep warm here in Denmark, and lined with black sateen. It was very difficult to photograph the color – in real life the color reminds me of a christmas tree.

I used a vintage pattern, and the only change I made is that I made my coat a lot shorter than the original one. It’s my first coat and I’m very pleased with the result and I just love wearing it!

Material Notes

Wool, sateen, thinsulate.

      Thank you so much! Yeah, I know the photographs aren’t that good, but for some reason I found it very difficult to take pictures where you can actually see the details. It doesn’t have that many details though – it just has welt pockets, and otherwise it’s pretty plain. And about the pattern: I know! I love it and I’m looking forward to making the dress as well!
