This design will carry me through the year. I think it will be wonderful in corduroy and soft woolens. I would even consider making it in leather. Features: The roll collar of course, smart cuffed sleeves, in-seam pockets, self belt. The coat is generously cut and the sleeves especially include a full amount of ease so that the coat is comfortable over, for example, bulky knits and tailored dresses.
Consider the cost of coats. This is a garment really worth making the effort for. I have made several versions for myself. I was determined to have something smart to wear over summer dresses this year and making it up in various coloured linens has been a great exercise to test out my pattern. I will be making it up again at the end of the summer too.
