Make a Debonair Men’s Camel Wool Coat

It is not too soon to think about the chilly days of winter, and we can all agree that everyone needs a toasty, debonair winter coat! Josephine from TheSilkFutures.Blogspot modified and made this coat for her boyfriend, William from Burda’s pattern 6039(also avialable at Britex!) We’d love to see this coat made up in classic imported fine English wool camel hair coating, and adorned with Italian Corozo buttons…the asymmetrical double-breasted front with its parade of buttons, and the stand-up collar gives this style dash. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
