This half coat with matching fabric belt coordinates well with both pants and skirts. Because there is no shoulder seam, the shoulder width on the size chart looks very narrow but the sleeve cap dart adds extra ease to sleeve width. Due to the design, in this coat it is easier to move your arms than normal set-in sleeve coats. The funnel collar which is a continuous piece from the body becomes large triangle collar when folded. When unbuttoned it gives draped collar look. You can enjoy various looks from one coat. There are not many seam lines in this coat and pocket construction is very simple. We recommend this item to those who think coats are too hard to sew.
