Hi everyone! I haven’t posted on here in a couple of months, but for good reason. I’ve been busy working on a WWII-era coat. I’m talking knee-length, heavy weight, filly-lined and warm coat. I am thrilled with how it turned out…from the lovely shoulder dart detailing, to the added on welt pockets. It was constructed from a vintage nylon felt fabric, faux fur, and lined with a salmon satin heavy lining.
I am not going to lie, this is my first coat project and I did experience some difficulty (mainly space-wise) in putting it together. It took me over a month to complete, due to hand attaching the lining and whatnot, but it was totally worth it. I will definitely use this pattern again in the (probably quite distant) future!
Please feel free to head over to my blog, to read more about this adventure and see more pictures! Thanks for reading!
