My second coat, this time done right.
It’s made using a vintage pattern from the 1960s, SImplicity 4670. “Collarless coat has 3/4 kimono sleeves with gussets at underarms, concealed pockets, double breasted effect and is lined”. I used dark green mohair coating, silk/cotton underlining, hair canvas and polyester(?) brocade for the lining. The buttons are vintage, from my stash.
There was a lot of hand sewing involved, and I got to try a new bound buttonhole method (the ‘windowpane’ method). I am very pleased with this big box of a coat, it is exactly what I first envisioned.
Mohair coating, silk/cotton underlining, hair canvas, polyester brocade, faux tortoiseshell buttons.
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
