I'm reeeaaally excited to show my very first coat.
I didn't use any pattern, I made one myself   Cheesy









Lots of pictures. I'm pretty proud   Roll Eyes

I made this baby from scratch, using gray twill fabric (it has a glittery thread in it and it's really gorgeous) and black polyester fabric for the lining. I gave it a huge hood, long sleeves that are puffed at the top, a chunky aluminium zipper and 6 military inspired tabs with black buttons.

I'm about to make a shorter one, using a cute burgundy houndstooth fabric I found last week.
I was wondering if I could make the same jacket, using some cotton fabric and some thick fleece for the lining (so that the coat is warm even if the cotton is thin and lightweight)?

Let me know what you think!   Smiley

that is utterly awesome. love the military tabs Cheesy

not too knowledgeable on the fabrics but i'm hoping it's a go for the fleece version because it would be sad not being able to wear something like this when it gets really cold.

thats awesome. I just finished a winter coat but it looks no where as good as that.

I think the fleece lining would work as long as it wasnt really thick as that might change the shape of the coat or the way it sits, especially around the arms.

Great, I love your coat!  Cheesy
The pattern is wonderful - quite simple, classic but feminine and playful (hope it's the correct use of the words...)
