Herringbone coating is the basis of this coat.
We had a bit of cold weather and fog so this year I was pretty ready for it, using Butterick 6062 as my coat pattern basis.
There’s nothing flash about this coat except is warm and cosy. I’ve kept the grayness of the herringbone fabric with the crepe lining and satin bias binding.
The lining is from the Fabric Cave. The herringbone coating is from Addicted 2 Fabric and the sleeve wool fabric is a Pitt trading designer remnant bought a few years ago. That double zipper is also bought from Pitt Trading too.
I didn’t have enough herringbone coating so I used the sleeve fabric for the under collar.
I added the collar myself. Did I do a test coat? Well yes I did… in a stable knit, to get the length dimensions right.
So I’ve skipped the jacket darts but did my usual roll shoulder adjustment and sway back adjustment.
So I’m officially a Winter-whoos. Hence the gloves and I’ve worn my warmest jumper that I only use when it’s cold or foggy, as these photos suggest. Here’s my blog post.
Stay warm everyone.
