Description

I tailored this checkered print medium weight wool blend fabric (from Mood Fabrics) into a sleek coat with a modern and edgy feel. I originally used a pattern for a floor length (“duster”) trench coat from Burdastyle, but made a few a changes including shortening it to mid thigh length, removing the collar, tapering the lapels, and adding a black silk sateen lining. Adorned with gold buttons that have a similar checked print, this coat is sure to make a subtle, yet cool statement. One aspect I love about this fabric, is the “leather look” it gives from a distance. I look forward to sporting this piece as the temperature continues to drop.
