This is the Book Blue Coat
I make these coats out of, where possible, 100% woollen blankets. I'm recycling old (but in good condition), unused blankets that have spent years hiding in cupboards, now they are being turned into glorious items to wear.
These are super toasty, the idea came from me wanting to have a blanket around my shoulders when we were having a camp-fire, but I didn't want a blanket draped around me, I wanted to wear it.
So I drew a design, created the pattern and made the first one ---- and I loved it, and it turned out other people did too. I went hunting for blankets, and was given some and started the process of choosing colours. I've tweaked the design here and there and I'm sure that will continue as they evolve. Most importantly I wanted them to be playful, cosy and have plenty of pockets!
The Book Blue coat is made from two blankets, that are 100% wool.
The lining is 100% cotton, it also has 100% cotton wading quilted into the lining for added warmth.
It has four internal pockets - two large and two small, and two pockets on the outer.
A lovely high collar keeps your neck snug.
Covered buttons & one spare button (green).
Measurements of the coats are approximate, these coats are designed to be oversized & relaxed so these measurements are meant as a guide:
Width armpit to armpit with buttons done-up - 62cm
Waist in total - 125cm
Top of shoulder to the hem - 92cm
I would call this size jacket a Medium
I have made all of these coats myself, they are all individual, no two are the same! I place the small internal pockets in different places on each one and play with the colour combinations. I generally find singular blankets so there are no multiples of colours - what you see is what I've found and the colours may not be repeated.
I hope you enjoy them for their 'one-off' uniqueness....no one is going to have the same coat as you.
