This, my first coat, was 9 months in the making, required more hand sewing than everything else I made in 2008 combined, but it was all worth it because it’s the warmest coat I’ve ever worn!! Read a huge amount of information on its construction, interlining, and my first bound buttonholes at http://www.fehrtrade.com/gallery/195/the-warmest-winter-coat-ever
Exterior: charcoal grey 100% wool coating from Rosenberg’s
Interlining: Black microfleece from Pennine Outdoor
Lining: Eggshell blue silk twill from Fashion Fabrics Club
Sleeveheads: from Kleins
Shoulder pads: from MacCulloch & Wallis
An inhuman amount of black thread: all Gutermann
