The warmest winter coat ever

London, United K...






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

Material Notes

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





Pattern is Burda WOF 09/2005 #102

Creation is FehrTrade

    Great job, and I love the idea of a microfleece lining for keeping warm! I´m living in Scandinavia, and we sure need some warm coats here in the winter time. NIce!

    This is really nice! I love the arrangement of the buttons (if that makes any sense) It looks all edwardian like.
