CLARE COAT

Regular price $32.00

The Clare Coat is a chic cool-weather staple. Featuring raglan sleeves and an unstructured A-line silhouette, Clare is a great introduction to the joys of coat making.

View A hits at mid thigh, with a face-framing collar, princess sleeves, exposed asymmetrical zipper and welt pockets. View B has a more minimalist vibe; double breasted, it ends at the hip with inseam pockets, full length sleeves and a dramatic funnel collar. 

SUGGESTED FABRIC

Body: Medium to heavyweight coating fabrics (ie. melton, felt, tweed and boiled wool). Bottomweight fabrics like denim, twill and canvas are also suitable for a lightweight spring or fall jacket.

Lining: Silk, rayon bemberg, flannel backed satin (aka kasha).

Interfacing: Fusible weft interfacing. View A also requires 0.25m of horsehair canvas, sturdy muslin or a heavier-weight interfacing to stabilise the collar.
