But I will refer to this coat as the Ms. Irene Adler, because Sherlock Holmes was in love with Irene (for as far as he could actually love) and I love this coat…
About the pattern, Watson-jacket by Papercut Patterns. The minute I laid eyes on the photos, I knew I had to have me one. I just love everything about it, the little cape, the back detail, the collar and the possible variations.
For the outer fabric I used a wool plaid, brown with a small stripe of yellow/orange and a small stripe of pink.
The lining is something synthetic with a nice feel and a gorgeous flowery-print.
Both are from Brussels.
Taking pictures in a wintercoat during Summer felt a bit strange, but a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do..
For more photos and info on how this came together, hop over to my blog.
See you next month for the vintage challenge! Hopefully with more than 22 hours to spare before deadline…
