It’s cold. My feet are cold, so this impromptu overlayer using Butterick 6062 came about.
This isn’t the way the pattern is drafted.
I used View A as my basic block; adding a wide collar; used the full sleeve length; lengthening the jacket to cover me up but kept the big pockets.
The main fabric was a remnant I bought at Addicted 2 Fabric. The contrasting sleeves are also a wool remnant from my fabric stash. The day I bought this fabric, I was freezing in Canberra and I was really close to using this fabric as a blanket.
This coat is a warm layer and it’s not too unstructured. There are darts in the pattern and I’ve not use them.
I had enough fabric to make the collar but not the under collar.
So I used the sleeve fabric for the under collar.
