I’ve had this fabric in my stash since August when I got it in Shenzhen. It’s a double sided cashmere I’ve been wanting to use it to make a short coat since then & it’s just been a matter of finding the right pattern. In the end I settled on a Vintage Vogue V1137 (reprint).
The coat is unlined as I wanted to make it reversible to take advantage of both sides of the wool, (I prefer the tartan side though. All the seams are flat-felled to hide the raw edges & the edges are trimmed with blanked trim.
You can find more information on my blog.
