'90s are back in fashion. I made this coat at the end of last year. I used Vogue1479.
Lately, the "Old Man" style has been in fashion in Japan during the past several years. I had been thinking about making a '90s styled coat. The Vogue pattern's envelope says pea-coat style, but I think it also looks like a "'90s Old Man's Coat" (This is a good thing). I wanted to make the coat using a mohair wool until I saw the envelope photo for the first time. I was glad that I had this fabric in my stash.
I changed the design a little bit. I had much fabric, so I could make the sleeve and back belts, and matched the plaids. I cut these pockets and belts (Sleeve and back) before attaching the lining, because I wanted to match the plaids perfectly. I am proud that the pockets and belts were able to match the plaids! I usually leave some fabric after making clothes but I used most of the fabric this time.
I love the '90s-looking coat! I would make it again. It's sometimes hard to layer a fitted coat over a chunky or over-sized top, but this coat is good for wearing over such thick clothes. It's loosely fitted and comfortable to wear.
