The fabric is meant to be upholstery fabric and has the nicest suedey feel. The buttons are vintage from my stash. The pattern is something I picked up on eBay a few years back. It isn’t dated but I’m guessing 1971 or there abouts (any ideas?).
As usual, I couldn’t find the motivation to make a toile to check the fit issues, and jeez does this coat have a couple, particularly round the bust area. But I think I can reduce this with a little work. I think the busy-ness of the print hides the worst of it anyways. Overall, I love my crazy coat! More deets on my blog.
