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.
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.
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
