DIY spring ready sleeveless coat

We are finally in our last days of winter thank goodness, but with that enters a few weeks of unpredictable weather.  It isn’t quite warm enough to put the coats away, but you can finally shed those layers.  What better way to do that than with a sleeveless coat, which if you follow my blog have seen several versions over the past few years seen here, here  and here.

When I spotted this Jill Stuart fabric on moodfabrics.com, I can honestly say I wasn’t in love with the texture.  I knew the color would make a great coat but I wasn’t sold until it arrived in the mail.   This fabric is gorgeous! the quality is amazing, it sews beautifully and irons great as well.  I’m a bit disappointed this is the only color available.

The coat was made using this downloaded Burdastyle pattern with the following alterations:
-Added a seam line down the front
-Added a front facing
-Made the coat sleeveless and added a 2″ faced band
-Removed the pocket stitching and tacked the pocket to the inside
