This is my new coat, made from pure wool and silk from Dior, which gave it its name.
The pattern is self-drafted and the inspiration came from Dior New Look silhouette: a defined waist and full skirt.
There are 8 bound-buttonholes and welt pockets and tailored lapels.

      Thanks. Yes, that’s my first tailored coat. But I had made a lighter one before, much easier.
