Take a look at this designer coat made to look as if the wearer is just wrapped in a lovely down comforter/duvet! (The text is in Finnish but you get the idea from the picture.) I saw it featured in a couple of design or women's magazines last winter.

Shouldn't be too hard to make out of an old blanket?! Click on the picture to see a back view as well.

The shape looks a lot like the "cocoon" coats of the early 20th century.  Smiley
