I’m one of those people who adores 3/4 sleeve coats. They look awesome but unfortunately are not built for frigid temperatures. The perfect solution to combat cold and transition your fall coats is the addition of the coat with corresponding arm warmers. When I saw this beautiful Italian wool fabric online at MoodFabrics.com, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. This fabric is much more special in person, it has a drape which makes it perfect for this loose-fitting coat. It’s tightly woven, irons well and sews perfectly.
I removed 4″ from the bottom of the pattern to make it a bit shorter.
I added leather and corresponding wool arm warmers, which you can find the tutorial here, with some leftover leather I had hanging around.
