A-Line Winter Coat DIY

I started this coat more than a month ago and abandoned it for warm weather projects.  Now that the temps are a little cool and the skies are cloudy, I decided to revive it.  For this particular coat, I wanted to try an A-line silhouette and shortened the hem to give it a little balance on my short stature.  If you are a longtime reader, you may recognize this fabric from the capelet DIY :)

A-Line Coat DIY

Difficulty: Easy-Intermediate

Time: ~3 hours

Pattern:  Butterick B5822 B (minus the funnel neck, but still contemplating if I should add it - thoughts?), narrowed frame, took up the length, snap closure

Materials: 2 yards of fabric - heavy woven from Joann's

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!


  1. What a fun print for a coat! I like it in this A-line coat more than the capelet (which is still cute too)! I love statement coats!


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 :)
