Eden Coat Inspiration

We think the Eden coat is one of the most exciting pattern releases this year! It is the perfect duffle coat and there are so many options to make it your own.

You can either choose to make yours a traditional wool duffle coat, or more of a lighter weight rain mac and there are two different length options, and optional pocket details and storm flaps.

You can save 10% off all coating fabrics and toggles using the code RETURNOFTHEMAC until Sunday 10th March 2019 (midnight GMT).

Wool Duffle – Fabric recommendations:

This burnt orange coating is such a stunning colour. It works perfectly with our Brown Toggle fasteners. This fabric is what’s known as a vegan wool and has the softest feel and a lovely medium weight. You could line it with one of our ex-designer linings or any of our viscoses.

Similar to the Burnt Orange, the Navy colourway would make a really classic duffle coat. You could line it with our mustard ex-designer lining for a real pop of colour!

This red washable wool would make a very cheery version. I love it so much, I used this fabric to make my test version of the Eden pattern!

You could even make your Eden from one of our Teddy Bear coat fabrics for a super cute style!

Rain mac – Fabric recommendations: 

We love the sixties styling of this PVC waterproof raincoat fabric. It is easy to sew (use a fairly fine needle) and it can even be pressed on a low heat, using a pressing cloth. There are several different colours and styles so you can choose your favourite!

If patterns aren’t your thing, we have the same fabric in three plain colours – bright red, dusky pink and mustard yellow.

It is a fab pattern to really get your teeth into and we can’t wait to see your versions popping up on our feed soon!
