It took more than a day to get this posted but you know how it goes... stuff happens!
In contrast to the tailored jacket, this coat is long and simply made. Even so, the fabric is 100% wool, soft, thick, and made in Italy. Definitely a better choice for Upcycling.
After taking it apart, I've got a good side section with facing that will be easy to peel off. I'll probably keep the patch pockets in the final design which will give me more fabric to work with.
The back section is nice and flat, too, although I'll have to do some piecing to sew up the back vent.
Tomorrow (who am I kidding) or some day, I'll post the final product from this coat. I was going to turn it into a shopping bag liner but now I'm thinking a tote bag. We'll see...
