fabrics inspirations for Hemisfèric coat

by Pauline Alice

I LOOOOVE coats! I might have said it a few times now but it’s true. And nothing pains me more than leaving in a city where coat wearing is almost optional (it’s compulsory for a few weeks in January only). But I won’t complain about sun and warmth…

Anyway, I love coats and a new coat pattern is always a great excuse to make at least a couple of prototypes and wearable muslins. For the Hemisfèric coat pattern, I wanted to offer a mix between classic and modern: a classic fit and flare shape that goes over a dress or a pair of denims allied to some modern details like the raglan sleeves and zipper closure. I hope you’ll like the design! Here are some styling and fabric inspiration for you:

A coat is a piece you’ll be likely to wear everyday for a couple of months so choosing a neutral fabric is always a good idea. Grey, navy, black, camel… these will go with everything and are perfect for a chic and timeless outerwear.

And you can always choose a bright lining, topstitching or a contrasting facing to bring a little fun to your coat.

Another option is to go for a colourful fabric to brighten up any dark winter day! Nothing better to cheer you up than a bubblegum pink or pastel blue coat, am I right?

Personally, that’s how I like my outerwear: with a pop of colour! You can also play with the style lines and choose a colorblock look (one neutral fabric and another one more saturated).

For the ones who love a one-of-a-kind look, why not choose a graphic fabric? Polka dots or animal prints will be easy to match, whereas a plaid will be more difficult but oh-so-pretty. You could also use trimmings on the collar, sleeves, zipper placket or hems or a brocade fabric for a party version.

Which style is your favourite? Neutral, colourful or prints? Let me know what kind of fabric you’ll use for your Hemisfèric coat…

Bonjour Véronique,

Le lainage bleu pastel utilisé pour ce manteau vient de chez Stragier. Je vous invite à visiter leur site en ligne. Ils ont une jolie gamme de lainage dans deux nombreux coloris.
