Tweed and Melton Wool Coat

Added Feb 6, 2018

I made two coats from a commercial pattern. I used the medium weight wool tweed and combined black faux leather. The gray one is made of melton wool. I made these belts using the leftover fabric. I wanted to make a basic coat and am happy with the results.

    They’re both lovely, Eli. And what a pleasure to see someone so far away wearing wool from a place just a few miles from where I live, in Leicestershire, England!

    The lovely little town of Melton Mowbray is famous for its wool but even more well-known for being the original home of pork pies and Stilton cheese!
