The Long Winter Coat and Hood
By Thimbles and Acorns
Brave the winter in this Laura Ingalls Wilder inspired Victorian Era coat and hood. The fully lined coat has a flared back that gives it an elegant drape and plenty of room for full skirts and the trim tailored front buttons down the front from the neckline to the lower front cut-away. The turned down edges of the two patch pockets are fastened with matching buttons. The front opening, hemline, and sleeves can be finished with decorative embroidery or trim and for added interest, the sleeve cuffs, pocket linings, and collar can be made in a complementary fabric. The fully lined hood is made separately from the coat and is tied on with an attached scarf. It can be finished with decorative machine embroidery and tassels.
