INTRODUCING THE SOHO COAT PATTERN
Meet our final winter pattern for 2018 – the Soho Coat! This stylish, classic coat is unlined and features a turned back collar, side pockets, drop shoulders, topstitched side seams and full-length sleeves with rolled back cuffs. The finished length has been designed to sit on or just above the knee but it can easily be adjusted suit your personal preference.
This pattern has been on the planning table for two years now and was actually a forerunner to our very popular Brooklyn Coat. See the similarities? We sewed up the original samples (below – both fabrics now sold out) for Bella and Gabby when they travelled to New York in 2016, hence the Soho naming rights. At the time, there was much, much discussion about whether or not to line the jacket and then some other patterns vied for our attention and….finally….here it is!
This coat closes just beneath the collar with a single button. Our favourite thing about Soho is definitely that collar which looks equally great worn up or down. My version (below) is made up in our wool/cashmere Berry Stories Twill (also available in Midnight navy).
Colette’s is made up in Grey’s Forest – a fabulous Italian double-sided wool/cotton/poly blend.
Suitable fabrics for the Soho Coat include soft to medium weight wool coatings including wool/cashmere blends, wool tweed, wool boucle and double wool crepe. Also suitable for heavy weight linen. Not suitable for super-fine or thick fabrics. Current suitable fabric stocks include…
