My Minoru is Fantastic

Wow, this is a long time coming. I finished this coat in the fall of 2015. We shot the pictures a few months later but somehow I didn’t get to posting because it felt as though I had to write so much about this project.

Since I made this coat I have been wearing it pretty much everyday in the colder months. To be honest I’ll probably not wear it as much next winter since most of the buttons have fallen out and it could use a wash (but the lining makes it unwashable).

Since it’s been a while I’ll just shortly write about it.

Pattern: Minoru Jacked by Sewaholic

Adjustments: Followed thisย great guide by Sallie Oh forย removing the gathers.

Added a front button placket.

Added a removable hood.

Added furry lining to the body and quilted lining fabric to the arms.

Added rib knit to the lining arms.

Added bellow pockets.

Added a drawstring at the waist instead of elastic.

Shell Fabric: Dralon (water resistant with teflon) from Stof & Stil

Main lining: I think it wasย this fake fur

Arm lining: Quilted lining fabric

I love to be creative, especially to sew, finding new patterns and fabrics is always rewarding and fun. I've grown up with the craft, my mother is a quilt-shop owner and her love for sewing has rubbed off on me.
