The Japanese Style Spring Coat

One of my first sewing students had carried a long term request to me last month. She wanted to have a special spring coat made . The lining should be in a “kimono style” and for the outer fabric she chose a pigeon blue fine corduroy. We confirmed on a chinese style stand-up collar, piped pockets and cover buttons as eye-catching details.

The coat pattern is ordermade and we did an additional fitting to get the length of the coat and the sleeves as she wanted it to be… we also arranged the shoulder width and the waist a little that she can choose to wear warmer sweaters underneath. Like this the coat became a very special piece, to wear for various occasions and also for the changes of the seasons.
