Cold Snap Coat Hack


When browsing Pinterest I fell in love with cropped jackets. They might not be the most practical pieces in one’s closet, but they sure are cute! 
So after making my first Cold Snap Coat I just knew I had to try and make a cropped version of it.

Guys, I’m so in love with this one!
It was a very simple adjustment. All I did was:

  • Cut the pattern piece to the height I wanted (keeping SA in mind), in this case my waist;
  • Sew the front/pleat seams all the way down like a princess seam.

That’s it. I didn’t need to grade or adjust the ease at all.
For this one, I went with the 3/4 sleeves and the smaller collar. I love how proportional it all looks.

The fabric I used is called Soft Coat, it has the look and feel of wool but it’s a poly/viscose blend. Perfect for people allergic to wool like me. The lining is satin. Both fabrics come from my favorite shop

It pairs so perfectly well with the new December Dress
This is what I’m wearing for Christmas brunch with the in-laws. <3

This has such a Jackie O feel to me. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
