I had a go at making a winter wool coat a couple of years ago. I’m not going to lie, it was a real challenge. I think mostly because I choose to use a PDF pattern which had almost an entire forest’s worth of pages to stick together. Coupled with the fact I choose to use faux leather mixed with thick wool, 2 completely opposite fabrics in terms of weight and behaviour. Since then I have been desperate to have another go at making one. However I have been a little daunted by the idea of tackling such a large garment again. But with all of the wonderful new printed coat patterns now available and these amazing new ex-Designer Italian wools we have just had in, I think the time may be here for a second attempt. The only question is, which one to go for?
