Cold Snap Coat Hack

THE COLD SNAP COAT 


When browsing Pinterest I fell in love with cropped jackets. They might not be the most practical pieces in one’s closet, but they sure are cute! 
So after making my first Cold Snap Coat I just knew I had to try and make a cropped version of it.

Guys, I’m so in love with this one!
It was a very simple adjustment. All I did was:

  • Cut the pattern piece to the height I wanted (keeping SA in mind), in this case my waist;
  • Sew the front/pleat seams all the way down like a princess seam.

That’s it. I didn’t need to grade or adjust the ease at all.
For this one, I went with the 3/4 sleeves and the smaller collar. I love how proportional it all looks.

The fabric I used is called Soft Coat, it has the look and feel of wool but it’s a poly/viscose blend. Perfect for people allergic to wool like me. The lining is satin. Both fabrics come from my favorite shop Stof-inc.com.

It pairs so perfectly well with the new December Dress!ย 
This is what I’m wearing for Christmas brunch with the in-laws. <3

This has such a Jackie O feel to me. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
