Grey Tweed Coat

 
 
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 cafĂ© 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.... :(  )
