The Simplicity, Arkivestry 100% wool coat I made for the missus in January.  It’s SO lovely on her, and makes her swagger and strut.  I blogged about every step of making this, and also put the links onto Pattern Review.  It weighs a ton, but is exactly right for her.

She’s barely 5’ tall, with short arms, so has NEVER had a coat that fits her properly until this one.  Another labour of love for my sweetie.

The process took several weeks, and is all elsewhere on the blog, search Simplicity 1732 to find all the stages! [The first post is here]

Extra touches inside- piped seams around the lining, reinforcement buttons, chain loop for hanging.
