My first attempt at a coat. Learned the importance of test fitting a pattern prior to construction the hard way – the coat is not as fitted as I had intended it to be. The pattern was a vintage 60’s, not worth mentioning as it was a brute to get through and I gave it up mid way to finish on my own.
Ah, but the color! The color alone lent enough inspiration to complete this project. The inside hood and facing material is a vintage wool plaid recently found. I really like the combination.
100% wool with rayon lining.
