Come see my new DIY coat up close with no missing details…
Today I’m so excited to show you guys my latest DIY project using Vogue Men Pattern 9041. As you may know I’ve been learning to sew with my girl Mimi G. Style and she is responsible for guiding over the past few months.
I love working with plaid fabrics because they give me a change by aliening the plaids up perfectly and I wanted to do a fully lined coat that was something I haven’t done yet. I styled my coat with a dapper look rocking a light blue dress shirt, tweed dress pants and the waistcoat (vest) from my navy suit. My burgundy striped bow tie compliments the bright burgundy cap toe shoes that works great with my plaid coat.
