A Fitted Wool Coat


A quick stop in a Goodwill to get some aqua t-shirts to cut up for an applique project, and I glanced at the coat rail and saw this.

Flawless heavy wool, a mink collar (with lapel notches!) and mink trim on the bottom of the front only (see the back!), a nipped-in waist, inverted pleats behind.

Not a single label or clue inside; I think it's been relined. Twenty dollars, and my size? Okay.

I found your blog by searching for Butterick 5152. Loved that robe you made.

That is one lovely coat, Anna! And you are quite lucky to score a fashionable one in Goodwill! The vintage design is notable. It looks very old school, yet is has that distinctively chic style. And yes, the mink collar and hem add charm to this awesome clothing piece.
