Description

This car coat was made for my husband’s uncle who had an old jacket which he’d bought in a charity shop but was now falling apart. He wanted me to copy it so I found a similar pattern and added extra pockets so that it matched the old one. He bought the fabric directly from a home-weaver on the Isle of Harris, Scotland and it came in bolts of only 30" wide so I had to be a bit creative with positioning the pieces. Althought the lining is quilted, it was quite thin and so I added an interlining of wadding. I also added some welt pockets to the inside.

    Thanks Ralf. It’s based on Kwik Sew KS 3123 but with the in-seam pockets moved up square pockets added to the face of the jacket and a zip inserted. I was pretty pleased with it – it looks better than the pattern picture anyway!
