DIY Outfit – Funnel Neck Coat

It's finally gotten cold enough in LA that I need to bundle up. I can almost pretend that it's cold enough to warrant a wool coat. At least when the sun goes down it's cold enough. :) I love the boxy fit and assymmetrical style. And bonus! This is a fairly easy thing for you to make yourself. Read on to see how I would DIY it. 

Step 1: Today's inspiration is this coat from Ann Taylor. It's a classic style that could easily be worn everyday. Whether you're making a grocery run or going to a concert, it goes with everything.

Step 2: The pattern Vogue V9136 is very similar to the inspiration. The pattern has multiple lengths and comes with the option for patch pockets or in seam pockets. It's part of the Very Easy Vogue series which in my experience are very easy patterns to construct.

Step 3: For the fabric I selected a grey knit wool coating from Mood. It's sure to keep you warm and not fray like crazy during construction. 

Are you making a coat this season? What's your favorite coat style?
