Red Twill Coat

October 12, 2009

I finished my coat, not without some issues… despite that, I like it and am happy that it’s done in time to actually use it on those crisp autumn days.

It’s made from a vintage, red twill that was part of Louise’s big auction haul. I only had 3 yards at 36″ wide and had to squeeze it out.

If interested, you can read more about it on my blog.


  1. What pattern did you use?

    I think it came out wonderfully! I read the rest of the story on your blog, and while you may see imperfections in it, I think it looks professionally made and very, very cool! I'd love to know what pattern you used; I'm dying for a good coat like that!
