Silvia Coatigan – the second

As the title suggests this isn’t my first Silvia Coatigan. I have worn my first Schnittchen Coatigan heaps so I decided to make another before the end of the winter season.

I purchased this vintage wool on a whim from Fabricabrac for $20. I fell in love with the colour and the feel of the fabric. Luckily I managed to just get all of the pieces cut from 1.5 meters of fabric.

I didn’t make any changes to the pattern from my first version other than to shorten this one by 2 inches through the body of the coat. The body of the coat it is lined with black viscose, the sleeves are lined with silk.

I bagged the sleeves and sewed the lining into the hem for a clean finish.

I will be adding a large hook and eye to the front of this coat to keep it closed when it’s windy. I just haven’t made it to my local sewing shop yet.

One of the best things about this pattern is the large pockets. No handbag required! The dress is the Mila dress by Style Arc which I previously blogged.

I know this coat will get a lot of wear in the month leading up to summer. It’s a relatively quick to sew and doesn’t take much fabric compared to most coat patterns. It’s the first Schnittchen pattern that I’ve sewn, it won’t be the last. I hope you get a chance to make it.

Happy sewing.

Costs:

Fabric $20

Lining $12

Pattern previously purchased & thread from my stash.
