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!
