Petite plaid coat

Added Jan 15, 2012

This is my own design. It’s a short coat made with a fabric which it’s been in the stash of my mother for almost twenty years. It has four pleats in the front, closed by four loops. The collar is asymmetric and it has a pleat hold to the base with a loop.It has inseam pockets. I had a few problems with the confection due to the asymetry of the pattern and for the lack of fabric, that’s why the facings are green. I’ll sure make this pattern again with buttonholes instead of loops and with a different collar.

    Beautiful coat. The pleat detail combined with the plaid is fabulous. I particularly love the unexpected back button detail.

    wow, it’s just wonderfull! I can imagine the problems with the asymetric because I am bussy with an asymetric waistcoat with collar. The collar was very difficult to construct. Your jacket is perfect!
