Description

This coat is a labour of love. The wool fabric was a splurge – the coat ended up costing me $120AU and hours of preparation but well worth the effort. I have lined it with red polyester and the buttons are from my Grandmother’s stash. It fits like a glove and has a regal feel about it. No adjustments to the pattern. It has lots of pieces and lining them all up requires patience but the end product is well worth the dedication.

I love it!

    This is a gorgeous coat; you did a wonderful job. I am going to have a peek at the pattern; I could use a new winter coat, and this is inspiring!

    Wow – this coat is the “ant’s pants”! I adore the colour – and the fab lines. Just gorgeous! And that collar is superb!

    So worth it Darl, you wouldn’t find something as nice as this in the store. Congratulations! Wear it in warmth with pride! It will last you for years!

      PS – just checked out the pattern – your coat looks much better than the illustration on the packet!

    Truly sensational. Your color choice is delectable. The collar has so much character and the buttons are the perfect touch. Kudos.

    Absolutely stunning. I think the cost of the fabric is a bargain…. imagine what you would have paid somebody else to make this for you but take away the satisfaction of you making it yourself.
