Sweater Coat

Sweater Coat Now on the Table


I made this coat previously.This style has no facings and just turned up cuffs..adding Fancy Fur around the edge in future!
I added some length (6 inches) to make a sweater coat for work when it is chilly and that is what I am making right now.

Pockets will be added in the side seam using another pattern.  I personally do not like pockets applied to the front.  I like to put my hands inside the side seams.  With a bulky sweater knit, I only have to cut out 2 sleeves and 2 front pieces, a back piece on the fold and 4 pocket pieces.... sew a couple of side seams and inset the sleeves ...I will try it on and then top stitch the lapels back and the cuffs up...DONE

Fabulous Fabric found in 'Treasure Hunt Room' at G Street Fabrics

Finished all seams with French Seams and put the pockets in the side seams at the end of the sleeve length...perfect for me

Covered Button Earrings

Adding 6 inches to the car coat length came just above my ankles to wear when chilly in the warehouse at work

Took Longer than I thought it would because I finished all seams so I could reverse the coat if I wanted to.  Bottom edge and one side of the front were all a strip of the white added on to the edge so it looked as if hand knitted.
