Sewing: Winter Coat Project Part 1

I've played around with a couple of jackets here and here - both relatively simple in construction - and am now venturing into a more complex type of coat.  For this initial foray, I am experimenting with quilted faux leather and heather gray fleece.  At the moment, this is still a work in progress.  The edges are still raw, I haven't affixed the closures, and I haven't decided on what kind of pockets I want.  I initially thought leather patch pockets, but am wondering if that is too much contrast.  Maybe fleece patch pocket with a leather flap?  Decisions…  If you have any thoughts on the pockets, I'd love to hear!

Winter Coat DIY w/ Faux Leather Accents


  1. What a fun project! It sort of reminds me of this Target Coffee Shop coat I'm loving:

  2. Leather flaps! That sounds like a great idea!

  3. Love the mix of gray fleece with leather! I'd say little leather accents on the pockets but then again, what do I know :)? Go with your gut!

  4. I actually really like how it looks with the leather pockets! If it were mine, I'd keep it this way. : ) Really cool project!


I'm the type of gal who gets giddy when I receive mail - it's no different with comments! I really appreciate the feedback and love hearing from you :)
