A few weeks ago I snagged this fantastic Marc Jacobs wool from moodfabrics.com. 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, Moodfabrics.com carries a variety of real and faux fur options.
The pattern used for this coat was Vogue V8841 with the following alterations:
-Added 8″ wide welted pockets and removed the side seam pocket option.
-Added a 3″ belted loop around the sleeves.
The pants were made using a stretch corduroy and McCall’s M6404 view A with the following alterations:
-Removed the welt pockets
-Removed the knee inserts
-Added a 3″ high waist
-Added invisible zippers to the inside ankle
Shades- Stella McCartney
