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 moodfabrics.com

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
