That’s the first coat I’ve sewn. It’s made of grey fulled 100% wool fabric – so it’s waterproof. I’ve already worn it in rain, snow, and wind – and stayed warm and dry. 🙂 On this picture, I’m also wearing my 1920s knitted Tam hat.
My coat is mainly inspired by this 1857 spring paletot. I drafted the pattern myself. I also made a muslin before cutting the wool. I had some difficulties making this coat; but I like how it turned out. It’s comfortable, and not too heavy.
