Just kidding, of course you weren't gonna get a wordless post! Let me tell you how this came about. We got this beautiful Mint Green wool in work a few weeks ago and I fell in love with it. I knew I had to have it and made something amazing from it. My initial thoughts had been to make Republique du Chiffon's Gerard Coat (as I made a successful, yet to be blogged, tartan version) but then I saw this Gant advert.
Pattern: Kwik Sew 3764
Size Cut: XL
Fabric: 2m wool from Mandors and 1.5m cotton for lining, also from Mandors
Notions: 3x metal zips, snap fasteners and thread
Alterations: Took in side seams from wrist to waist approximately 1.5" on each side. Used outer pieces to cut lining to fully line jacket.
Notes: Next time go easier on the snaps and consider putting the zips in the sleeves (if I make it again!)
