Military style coat. Wool mix for jacket. Lined with Japanese fabric. I had intended to line the jacket with red but decided to use this bright fabric which was a gift from tokyo. It certainly adds an unusual touch, but isn’t that what making your own clothes is all about? It was time consuming but pretty straight forward to make, but I didn’t enjoy doing the piping. (I’m not very experienced at making clothes) I made the piping quite chunky on purpose as the coat reminded me too much of the Garda (police) coat worn here in Ireland and I felt the red needed to be more prominent.
