mssewcrazy: harvesting is a great idea. You will need two things since there is a closure holding inside as well. You could also use ties or leather straps for a different look.

Fabulous looking versions of the coat! Do you think you might be able to harvest a metal buckle closure from a belt and recycle it or even hardware from a thrift store coat if all else fails. This coat pattern is so versatile it could change endlessly with the fabric and hardware.

Wow, three versions of this coat for you - each so different. I love this one too and it looks truly rain repellent and with the bonus lining. Super job as always.

This is a great robe- and of course, coat. Everything you make is wonderful.

Somehow I missed this the first time around -- wonderful swaggery coat, indeed (wonderful sentence, too!). Love the first version and really love the robe. So cozy and classy.

WOW! Just beautiful. How many shoes do you own? Every outfit you make has the perfect shoe to go with it! Don't think I haven't noticed!

Very snuggly looking - it's great to see a robe that's not the normal style.

Ann, I love all those new things you posted, but especially this coat! It's beautiful.

Great fabric and colors and very smart looking on you. Whichever way you wear it, coat or robe, it's sure to keep you warm. I want a cozy robe too.

Beautiful! THis looks so chic on you, Ann. I love your hair, by the way.

I'm wondering about using this pattern for a bathrobe/house coat.

This is a beautiful coat with nice lines. I think if you were to look on ebay for antique buckles you would find something nice. I have some gorgeous victorian cut steel buckles and shell buckles that would look great with a coat like this!

I'm planning on making this coat. I found that the Sewing Workshop website stocks these buckles:

MarilynB, I didn't like the doggie buckles. They are too heavy plus have a bit of a bend so they don't work well enough. I'm resigned to the plastic ones.

Love your coat, Ann. If you like your doggie buckles when you receive them, please publish the website.

Thank you all. I love this coat. Leslie, I hope to make this into a raincoat as well.

As usual a beautiful result by Ann. I enjoyed looking through all her projects again. This coat is definitely on my list but I am looking to make it up as a raincoat.

Very nice. That fabric is perfect for the coat, with a nice sheen. You look lovely, BTW.

Beautiful result for the infamous boiled wool!

Wow: you've been a busy sewing lady. This, as usual, looks fantastic on you. Love the color, style and buckles.

Lovely. I'm glad you found the buckles you want.

Wow! And, clicking through your photo album - you obviously know what your best colors are... no one would ever guess you make your own clothes I bet!au

This is a lovely coat. It has a feeling of late teens early twenties styling to my eye, that is one of my favorite times of fashion. Just beautiful!

A beautiful coat. I love the buckle closure!

Beautiful coat on you! I am so tempted to try this even though I rarely need to wear a coat either.

How beautiful. I was so unsure about this coat on my figure type, but yours doesn't look at all baggy. It's very good looking.

Great coat. I have it on my list to use to sew a raincoat. Glad to see your review.

I love, love, love the coat! What a great way to use the boiled wool.

Esmerelda, I had spotted the ones on the SW website but they look exactly like the plastic ones I have. No mention of what they are made of. About lining, I don't see any reason you couldn't line this if you duplicate the pattern pieces. The lining will show at the turnback and hood interior.
Esmerelda Twinpalms said... (2/22/06 6:28 PM) Reply
Wow! I've been looking for a coat pattern. This could be it, although I think I'll wait till next winter, now. Do you think it could be lined? Even though I'm in California, I'd like a new lined coat.

Even though I'm in California, I'd like a new lined coat. I just found the slide buckles at the sewing workshop web page Can't tell whether they're plastic or not from the photo.

What a super looking coat - terrific job you did - looks great. I may make this as it is coming on to Spring here in Canada and an unlined coat would be OK. I hate tight fitting coats so this would be ideal.

Great coat, Ann! I admired this pattern when I saw it modeled at etaDallas. I think it's a classic. You made wonderful use of the boiled wool!
