Waisted wool coat with yokes

Based on the draped trench coat with yokes, I have drafted a more fitted version for the winter. I ordered some deep orange wool fabric online, but didn’t have any patience to wait for it’s arrival. So I decided to make a test version of some old wool fabric I had laying around thinking it was better to use is for learning purposes than to not use it at all.

I was almost finished with the test when my order arrived. Unfortunately the fabric didn’t match my expectations at all. Both the colour and the texture was way off.¬†Note to self: Don’t order expensive fabric based on a tiny picture online!

So I decided to make the best of the coat I had already started, and try to make it look like a finished garment instead of the test it was meant to be. Ok, so the waistline is a little on the long side in the back, and I had a lot of issues in the collar, but all in all I’m pretty pleased with the result, and I’ve even used it on several occasions already. I guess sometimes impatience pays off.
