DIY Coat Sew Along


The cooler temperatures have inspired me to start sewing some coats and jackets lately. I've noticed I always wear a sporty puffer coat to keep warm and want to add more prints and styles to my wardrobe. I've been wanting to sew a classic coat to wear to dressy occasions and with a neutral color like beige/camel (I already have a black one). I liked this simple yet elegant Sophia Swing Coat pattern from Indygo Junction. I can pair this coat with anything from a sweater and jeans to a holiday dress. To finish off the center front closures I used Dritz Sew-On Toggles. These add instant detail and professionalism to any coat and are easy to apply. Get the details below and make your own.  


Supplies:


Cut the pattern out according to the instructions. 


Follow the pattern instructions to construct the garment. 


For the closure I used Dritz Sew-On Toggles in the middle. You can place them anywhere you'd like. I pinned them first to get an idea of how they'd look with the coat on. 


You can hand sew the toggles on, but I find it much easier to use my sewing machine.  I like to use button or jeans thread which is thicker than all-purpose thread for a nice contrast. I set the stitch length to 4.5 and used my hand wheel the first couple of stitches. Then once I see the thread is stitching through each hole evenly I continue to sew. Just go slowly and adjust the hand wheel and presser foot accordingly. 

For the plaid jacket I used a quilted fabric and to finished the edges I used Dritz 1" Fold-Over Elastic which gave the edges a nice contrast. I used the black Sew-On Toggles for the front closures. 

Now that I've done a simple material I really want to try a fun print for my next one. So many ideas and way too little time.

  1. I've been writing about the trench coat origins and history (outcomes). Today, it's a fashionable trend and years ago it was a neccesity for military purposes. The traditional trench coat had 10 front buttons. Jay Hemmings has a comparison table of Emary’s and Burberry’s coats.

    A military garment with origins far older and how to do my essay or choose a topic.

  2. Outstanding Long DIY Coat. The Thermoball from North Face is one of their hottest down jackets and permanently reason. It is a super-lightweight associated warm insulated jacket that you simply will use as an outer jacket or layer betting on the season.

  3. مقاله و مقاله نویسی یکی از راه های بین المللی و جهانی برای انتشار دانش ها و دستاوردهای جدید است اما برای رسیدن به دستاوردها نیاز به خواندن تعداد بالایی مقاله داریم. مقاله های تخصصی به علت تخصصی بودن و داشتن اصطلاحات دشوار انگلیسی درک و فهم آن ها سخت بوده به همین علت شما میتوانید در سایت ترجمه آنلاین ترجمه تخصصی مقاله های موردنیازتان را به راحتی به دست آورده و روند پژوهش های خود را سرعت ببخشید.
