Leopard Coat in Progress- Vogue 8884

On Sunday, I started my next project, which I mentioned in my Fall sewing plans post - a leopard coat.

The fabric is from Mood Fabrics and it is an Italian stretch canvas






And the pattern is Vogue 8884


I have made this before in a Spring coat

I am using the same construction techniques from the spring coat and it sure goes more quickly when you have this all blogged and I just follow right along!

I am hoping to have this finished before Saturday, which Parent's Day at Meredith's university.  

Take a look at all the leopard coats on Pinterest

  1. This will be great! It reminds me of a Kate Spade coat I saw a couple of months ago. Have fun!

  3. Sounds great! I have some leopard print fabric and have been going back and forth between making a coat or a skirt. I'm leaning toward a skirt because coat weather is a very short season here. It's also good to know that our blog posts can be helpful to us with future projects:)

  4. Ooo! I bet it will be very fab. And it is awesome to make things the second time around, when you already know what the kinks are!

  5. Looking forward to seeing this coat, a very popular item right now! I have some leopard in my stash, but only enough for a top, I think....I'll have to take a look :-)

  6. I made a coat last Spring out of this exact fabric! It worked out really well and was fun to sew. I wear it all the time. I can't wait to see yours!

  8. This is on my list for sewing also, I love your fabric I was trying to find a leopard ultra suede with no luck. May consider your choice. Can't wait to see your coat!

  9. My sister LOVES animal prints. If she knew you, she'd probably try to talk you out of the coat. I can't wait to see it.

  10. I love it when animal prints are available. My 23 year old daughter has leopard print flats and a leopard print gauzy loop type scarf. I recently saw a fellow bike rider with the same two items worn with a striped tee (mainly a cream background with a thin blackish stripe) and cream pants. I quickly started camera phoning the combination to my daughter. Luckily the other woman didn't turn around! My daughter is perusing all her striped tees now, because it was such a good combination. You are always such a good print queen. Please don't ever stop loving them and sewing with them. We can all figure out plain neutrals, but it takes a champion to get the prints sewn well and standout.
