Aix En Provence,...
This origami coat is a Lalimaya (small French company) pattern. It is available in a child or adult version.
It’s a lined coat with: stand up collar, inseam pockets and of course the pleats without which it could not be called the Origami Coat. Fan pleats are on the right front and sleeve heads. Regular pleats give texture to the belt band at the back.
The grey and red fabrics I picked for the shell which is a synthetic like wool “caban” gave my steaming iron quite a work out to create the pleats.
The results are in! Check out our winning submission.
