I have been working on launching a new outfit or piece of clothing in my Etsy store each week. Last week was a baby outfit. Today it was a copy of the classic red duffle coat. I used a heavy cotton twill and lined the hood with contrasting stripes. I left the body of the coat unlined like the original. I did clean finish all the raw edges.
The buttons are a bit oversized but, once again, it’s true to the original.
I am very please with how smart this coat is. There was quite a bit of sewing for such a small garment. It’s great for sharpening your sewing skills because the seam allowances are small and the top stitching is very close to the edge.
