Description

A demi-season coat made by Simplicity pattern 2311. There are few modifications of the pattern but this one attracted me the most because I like double-breasted coats and jackets and because of the collar – apache.
The coat is well-designed. Surprisingly I didn’t have to do any adjustments, I only lengthened the coat for 4 cm and thus become short of fabric so had to cut the sleeves on the bias:-) Although one-seamed sleeves are quite unusual for a coat they set well and look nice.
Generally, I’ve got the coat both classical and feminine and like the result very much:-)
The pattern was taken from Diana Modern 1/2011 (Russian edition) but I give the link to see the modifications.

Material Notes

Very dense wool coat cloth. Viscose for the lining.

      Дякую, так гарне пальто. Мені теж подобається:-) Щодо верхнього одягу я досить примхлива, мабуть тому, що він шиється на декілька років, тому не повинен швидко набридати. Це котик – Мурчик :-)

      Ага! Я вас розумію! На пальто мені не жалко потратити й місяць, саме через те, що носиться роками. А котик дуже хороший!

      You are right, that’s why i like classic patterns, then it’s easy not to think if we look modern or not:-)

      I may have to consider my choices – I always like to try new styles and patterns…
