Description

I made this coat last winter. It was so hot today I nearly died taking these pictures (which explains why I am wearing a winter coat, yet no trousers). I blogged about it last year on and I wanted to take some more photos for the delightful drflen (sorry it’s so late). I’m finding it difficult to upload a lot of photos here, so detail photos are on my blog.

Material Notes

It’s a great coat, although if I was to make it again, I’d use a different fabric. It’s a beautiful 100% wool but it creases like a bastard.

    This is a fabulous coat, a fabulous design, very sexy and trendy and different from what one usually sees in a coat. Inspiring!

    What a lovely design. The bow is the finishing touch – it would look ‘naked’ without it. Really lovely!

    Thanks guys!! It actually wasn’t really hard at all to make. I made my own pattern, but it was just like making a lined dress out of coat fabric! If you want to see details of the construction, have a look at my blog.
