DIY wool sleeveless  coat
Fall and winter has to be my all time favorite seasons simply because I LOVE coats.  When I say, I love coats that is not an exaggeration.  When I think about what to wear, It always starts with outerwear.

When cleaning out my closet, it occurred to me that I don’t own a single blue coat.  So enters this beautiful navy wool from Mood Fabrics I found while in NY a couple of months ago. It’s pretty close to perfect! here is a great wool option found on

The patterns used for this coat was the top half of Simplicity 1756 and the bottom of vintage Simplicity 8130 with the following pattern alterations:

-Removed the open pockets and replaced them with flap welt pockets
-Added a double button
-Removed the vents
-Faced the arm holes
-Lined the coat with this silk 

Jeans- 7 For All Mankind

Shirt- J-crew

Heels- Manolo Blahnik
Clutch- Bottega Venetta
