Fall/Winter Fabrics Trend Report by Mood: Soft-Colored Coats

Fabrics Trends Fall 2013 Mood Fabrics

If there’s one thing we learned from the Fall/Winter fashion shows, it’s that it’s time for a new coat. Preferably a little oversized and in a soft pastel color. Keep the lines simple and you can make a new coat in a weekend. Scroll down for Mood’s fabric suggestions and some pattern suggestions as well.

Pattern suggestions: If you want really oversized (see Carven), then head to Etsy and search 1980s coat patterns. I’m in love with an early ’90s Vogue Pattern—2692—for a coat that’s loose but not too voluminous and sews up fast. Other oversized but not overwhelming coat patterns are:
Vogue 8860, 8933
Butterick 5822, 5960, 5823
New Look 6153
BurdaStyle 7020, 7177

Now get sewing that new coat!

    I am looking for winter white cashmere and wool blend for a winter dress coat. haven’t found anything I like in designer or off the rack items. Thought I could make the style I want myself. Do you have any suggestions in finding the fabric I’m looking for? Thank you

    Love the pastel fabrics you’ve posted. It’s just hard to wrap my head around light colored coats for the fall/winter seasons but the designers are slowly gaining on my “mature” thoughts.
