Lie's winter coat

Added Nov 14, 2009

by lie

Herentals, Belgium






Actually I made this one last winter but didn’t completely finish it.
I still had to make the button holes by hand (otherwise the fabric would ravel out) and did some last finishing touches:-)
(I hope my english is a bit understandable?!)
It’s a knee-lenght coat and it has two pockets in de front seems. It turned out to be a bit too heavy, but I’m pretty proud of this one.

Material Notes

I used a very heavy cotton-like loose-woven fabric, lining, shoulder-pats, 8 big buttons, 4 small buttons

    It’s gorgeous! I love the military style tab on the shoulder and the collar is nice.

      I did use a pattern from ‘knipmode’ but that’s a dutch magazine and I think it’s only published in the Netherlands and in Belgium.

    Buttons feature so much in this year’s fashion. This looks like a very warm coat.

    a great coat. I particularly like the way you can shape the collar. I admire you for sewing the buttonholes by hand…

    All those button holes by hand? That must have been fun – haha! The coat looks great! I especially like the neckline and the ribbon for the belt.
