DIY Wool & Fur Coat

DIY Wool & Fur Coat
A few weeks ago I snagged this fantastic Marc Jacobs wool from  It’s a heavy weight, double cloth wool that sews and cuts perfectly.  When I purchased the fabric, true to form I had no idea what I was going to make but knew it was going to be a coat.  When I pulled the fabric out the box and discovered how rich it looked, I instantly knew what I wanted to make.  I lined the coat with a charmeuse I had in my stash.

So putting to use a piece of a beautiful brown and cream fur cape I found last year at a thrift store, I knew it would make a perfect match.  Luckily for everyone, carries a variety of real and faux fur options.

The pattern used for this coat was Vogue V8841 with the following alterations:

-Added top stitched seams down the front of the coat by cutting the front pattern piece.
-Added 8″ wide welted pockets and removed the side seam pocket option.
-Added a 3″ belted loop around the sleeves.
