Fall coat.

Yes, I made myself another coat. Apparently, the row of coats in my closet are not enough. This one in a black and brown wool, with a big round collar and welt pockets. 

Simplicity 5103 from 1964. 

My version.

I put one snap button on the inside of the collar to keep it in place.

Thick insulating lining for that cold downtown wind.

Yes! Welt pockets!

And it was all created on my new sewing machine, Ms. Babylock Grace. 


  1. Awesome, it looks just like it was made in the 60s! Way to make a plaid work.

  2. This coat is amazing! Seriously, great accomplishment!

  3. What a beauty! I love everything about your coat!

  4. Wow, this is amazing! It looks very snug and chic at the same time!

  5. That is a lifetime coat. Always fashionable, and the quality looks impeccable. Well done.

  6. that looks so warm and cosy, very chic for the winter.

  7. So lovely! Looks precisely like it should for the pattern, very authentic. So well done!
