The Improper Coat

I made a coat from extremely strange fabric. It’s fleece but with a waterproof pique front. It was listed under the label “high performance.” I have no idea what made me buy it. I think I just really liked the warm grey color. I wanted to make an everyday coat- something I could throw in the wash but also something that looked a little nicer than a standard zip up fleece jacket. The pattern is a Burda envelope pattern, 7314. I skipped the lining and tried my hand at binding all the interior seams. Totally unnecessary but a good learning experience. I’m pleased with the result, though it’s far from perfect.
