Description

I made this coat as the final garment of my draping class at FIT. It is inspired by a coat from Reiss and wool is again Marc Jacobs (but a slightly different color). I made the pattern (draping+flat pattern).
More about my inspiration, some construction notes and close-ups on my blog!

    I had a feeling it was Tudor City. Good choice for the location.
