My impractical coat
Added May 7, 2011
Wool autumn coat with raglan cropped sleeves made a couple seasons ago. Burda Magazine 10/2007, model 101.
I’m in love with sixties look so this coat is one of my favourites. Can I say – it’s convenient? Controversial question… Because there are just a couple snap-buttons located close to the collar the hem flutters in the wind. Because of cropped sleeves I have to wear more or less matching top under it or pair it with long gloves. Adding some additional snaps or lengthening of sleeves would kill the look… and long gloves look so nice and feminine. So I made no alterations. Who cares about convenience?! I’m just enjoying my feminine impractical coat.
P.S. The hem is hand-stitched. Wristbands are removable.
Wool, lining – rayon, interlining, 4 snap buttons, faux fur.
