Outerwear Round up

Pin It
Well, though it is still fall in the northern hemisphere, we had a significant spurt of winter weather this week.  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that your travel was not too stressful with the storms that just crossed the US.

All that snow got me thinking, do you sew your tween coats?  I have sewn several jackets, but for weather below freezing, I always just purchase rtw.  There are actually several coats on the market that would be lovely in either boiled wool or high tech fabrics.  Below are a few that I thought would be especially versitile.

So, let us know... Do you make coats?  Where do you buy your outer wear fabric? 


  1. The Coco jacket was my first coat. I love that alpine jacket! It looks difficult:)

  2. I love that Kwik Sew coat! I made my oldest daughter a wool duffle coat a couple of years ago. She's still wearing it this year, though I had to add ribbed knit cuffs as the sleeves were getting a little short.;) I'm planning on sewing a fake leather moto jacket for her this year. Hopefully, I'll get around to it before Christmas!
