A travel in 60s for a little coat

by Bellis Winter on February 11, 2014 · 5 comments

in 1960s

Or Paletot, this is the name of this little coat in French.

I was looking for a pattern for a coat to wear with trousers and dungarees. After some research in my collection, I found this one in a Burda magazine (2010-10)

The wool tartan was waiting for a project !

And now, I wear it all days…

When Ink and me walk together

I'm Bellis Winter, always lost in fabrics and colors. I love 40's and 50's, it's so important to be "myself" in clothes to feel better, to be feminine. Sewing all the time, sometimes knitting... I'm french girl who live in the south but love the north

This is gorgeous! It’s so nice in tarten. I’d love a copy of this pattern – must have a look on the Burda Style website….

Looks lovely. I wish I were there strolling with you in France and talking about sewing! We are up to our knees in snow in the US.
