Very Bright Vogue 9134


This is Vogue 9134.
It took me about a year to make, with several stops and starts.
The fabric, a Dior double wool, is extremely bright and impossible to photograph.
I used Sherry’s very informative tutorial on RTW coat making for the most part, and had some help from a Courrège chef d’atelier I met at a local fabric store.
I have talked and talked about this coat all year long and the thread, in reverse order, is all here.

  • The colour looks perfect for a chilly grey winter day.

    I think you pattern is the most stylish 70s pattern I have ever seen. Will you make the pants and blouse too?

    • I have actually made a matching skirt which I will blog about soon. It’s not vintage though.
