Magenta and Dark Orchid Fleece Coat


Hello everyone! Here’s my latest project. A fleece coat from an old pattern by Donna Karen. I love the color combination of the magenta and dark orchid together. This is such a fun coat to wear. I've worn it several times already this week. I can tell this is going to be one of my favorite “wear it everywhere” coats. It’s so cozy and warm. Perfect for this time of year, especially for the bitter cold weather we are enduring here in MA. This was an easy pattern to follow. The trick is to use canvas material as a binder and stiffener for the front facing as well as sleeves and hem. It gives great structure to the fleece. I’m hoping to make a couple more coats this winter. I want to make use of all the fleece I still have left in my fabric collection. This is the winter of the coats. I can’t believe how many I actually made this winter. I’m just in a coat role. Lol. Well that’s it for now. I hope all of you have a great week and for those of you who are in cold climates, please stay warm. Make a coat or two. It’s fun and easy with fleece. Affordable too. And, as always thank you for sharing in my sewing journey. See you soon, Debora
