Last winter, I started working on Vogue 1277 using a selection of boiled wool fabric.  I created piping out of a lightweight faux suede fabric and put the coat V1277 together. At that point, I realized it was not a good choice for me – the coat was massive, and the way it’s constructed, it was virtually impossible to make it smaller.  The style does have the back flaring out away from the body, and the stand-up neck was quite high.  I’m only 5’4″ and chunky, so it didn’t work on me.  I think if you are tall with long legs, this would be amazing! So this December, I re-cut the existing shell into a new shape based on a old jacket pattern I had.  This is the result.   013
