Here I am wearing the teal wool coat I finished before Christmas.
The main body of the coat is in a dark teal wool, with pockets, belt and facing/collar in a slightly lighter teal wool. I've also drafted and added a lining in a dark teal satin which feels very luxurious. It has medium sized shoulder pads.
Here wearing the coat with a hat and scarf knitted for me in previous years by YorkshireLass.
The pattern was from the UK women's magazine Prima, which includes a
free sewing pattern for subscribers. This was the one from Feb 2015. The patterns are often available on ebay.
Fabulous coat and it will match with so much of your wardrobe. It is terrific that a mainstream magazine will still offer sewing patterns -Australian magazines used to do this but I havent seen it for years. And it is a great pattern , it looks like the $1000 + coats that the Duchess of Sussex wears.
Wow, that is very much your color! It's a truly elegant ensemble, love it!
Absolutely love your coat! The color is fantastic on you and the collar frames your face so nicely.
Love the color, love the look, and you not only look nice and warm, but fashionable and chic! Fantastic!
Really lovely and the color is so flattering. You did a great job with the fit as well.
