Grey Wool Coat

Added Oct 8, 2007

Fall is coming and its getting colder. So I sewed my first coat.

I took the pattern from a coat I bought a few years ago. Therefore I’ve pinned sandwich paper on the coat and have drawn along the seams. I know that others prefer planes that painters use for covering the floor. But I think the result is alright.

Sewing the coat wasn’t as complicated as i thought. Only the lining was a little bit fiddly.

Now I need to come to a decision concerning the buttons.

Material Notes

2,5m Wool Fabric
2m Lining
10 Buttons

    This!!? First coat and from a traced pattern! You are a natural! The result is perfect! Black, silver or gray buttons would go nice, also maybe big wood buttons?

    I think you did a lovely job with it— though I’m not quite sure what you’re getting at about sandwich paper vs. dropcloths when it comes to making the patterns!

    Thanks for you feedback. So I have now ordered buttons online (see the picture above). They are 3cm big.

    I hope they will match to the fabric and the pattern….

    It looks great! I’m really impressed you could make this from a traced pattern. I agree with Fashion1 on the buttons, they should be fairly big and either a matching grey or black.

    wow! looks sophisticated and stylish! i think big buttons would be good. perhaps in grey, black or matt silver.
