My first attempt at sewing a jacket / coat! I finished my trench style coat for Jungle January in animal print! It is based on the Christine Hayne’s pattern and the fabric talked about in this post. Now, you all thought I was going to put the leopard/lion print on the outside and the camel on the inside, right?? Admit it. And, BAM! Leopard/Lion print on the inside!
I altered the sleeves from the pattern quite a bit and made them longer, adding a cuff with button and also added a tie belt with belt loops.
Of course, NEVER to be outdone, Kitty also got his jungle on and styled a coordinating leopard print collar. Bias binding was attached to the raw front edges of the coat and around the collar. To learn more about how to attach bias binding, click here.
