I Am Patterns - Merlin Coat
I am Merlin, a lapel coat to brave the cold. I have enough ease to wear a warm sweater underneath. You close me with one button at hip level with an option to add another button a few inches above. I have tailored two-piece sleeves, welt pockets and I am fully lined.
Wool coating: boiled wool, wool gabardine, melton and boucle. Choose a medium to heavyweight fabric with some body to keep the structure of the coat.
