|Soho Coat Shortened|
The Soho Coat sewing pattern comes as a full length coat pattern and I have sewn that version three times now. But unless it is particularly cold out I find that I get much more use out of my shorter jackets. They are easier to wear with pants for walking and they are easier to wear for getting into and out of the car.
So I shortened the pattern by nine inches and made it up in this gorgeous poly-cotton pewter and black ginkgo jacquard. The print is reversible which is great for this coat because the wrong side shows in the hood area.
The diagonal lines of the cross over front, A-line silhouette and the curved hem make this coat stylish and flattering on many figure types.
