I’ve had this fabric in my stash since August when I got it in Shenzhen. It’s a double sided cashmere & I’ve been wanting to use it to make a short coat since then, it’s just been a matter of finding the right pattern. In the end I settled on a Vintage Vogue V1137 (reprint). I’ve used this pattern in the past & this time I shortened it & left out the lining to end up with what I wanted.
The coat is unlined as I wanted to make it reversible to take advantage of both sides of the wool, (I prefer the tartan side though). All the seams are flat-felled to hide the raw edges & the edges are trimmed with blanked trim. I quite like the results it has the feel of a vintage weekend esape to a country estate or the sea… I think my imagination is running away, anyway, you can find more information on my blog.
