Woolen Coat

Added Jun 9, 2012

Exeter, United K...






I was asked to make this coat for a client and i work mainly by mail order so when we had agreed a price and fabric he sent me the measurements i asked for i was a bit taken back because i had already told him that the style was a semi fitted so it would follow the contours of his body down to his hips where it would flare out . But if i had tried to do that with the measurements he gave me it would have looked silly,so with a bit of artistic licence i re engineered the coat but kept it looking the same
The green is the slimline version and the purple is the larger version
The fabric a a 100%wool with Jaquarded silk patches sewn on to the wool,
All seams are princess seams and are top stitched,with two side pockets and fully linned
And thecoat is very snuggly buggaly

    I suspect your client is a wizard from a Studio Ghibli film… Very magical. :)

      I don’t doubt your magical abilities for a second. I was purely judging your client’s character and occupation by his choice of style.
