The Lady Grey by Colette Patterns is a lovely coat; it features a generous peplum, 3/4 sleeves, a glamorous wide collar and a belt.
I made this coat because of Gertie’s Lady Grey Sew-A-Long on her blog. She was generous enough to share her knowledge of tailoring techniques with the blogosphere. I learned a lot from this project and am very pleased with it. I just wish it would get cold enough in Florida for me to wear it!
I used wool gabardine for the outer coat shell, and a coat lining from Gorgeous Fabrics on the interior. I also used copious amounts of horsehair canvas and silk thread!
