This is the second coat I made from my original coat pattern.
The pattern is made for my mother who is more of an average height of Japanese women than I, so it looks a bit shorter on me than it is supposed to.
I made this coat to be displayed in a café owned by a friend of mine in Japan. I think I will make some minor changes to perfect the pattern further… not very satisfied with sleeves and upper skirt pattern…
Also, pockets will be nice for a coat. I didn’t make pockets for the pattern originally because of my mother’s requests. She wanted a foldable light coat she could carry around in her purse… hence, I eliminated pockets, shoulder pads, and anything that might add bulk to the coat.
The fabric is some wool blend that I purchased several years ago in Oklahoma. This time I fully lined the coat.
It’s beginning to look like winter around here…or so I hear at the local mall that plays Christmas music on repeat already…
(Off the topic...but I was wondering if anyone had problems making photos bigger on Blogger posts?? For me, sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.... :( )
