The very fantastic Issey Miyake coat

Quite excited about this one 🙂 I made a coat, following Issey Miyake’s Vogue pattern V1320. I have made coats before but was a bit nervous about this one, I think because it’s a ‘real’ winter coat, not like the other coats I have messed about with.

The fabric is from Abakhan in North Wales. It’s one of my favourite fabric shops, and I found this stuff in the baskets that you rummage through and pay by weight. It came in a few different colours but I loved the green, looks ace with black skinny jeans. A good find and a happy make. I just wore it on the school run and got compliments already 🙂
