Maxi Coat in Harris Tweed

Fall is the ultimate season of cover ups - cozy and stylish coats, classy trenches, romantic capes. My coat for this fall is a bow to the timeless English fall classics, to the ever so modern Harris tweed.

Какая осень без пальто, плащей, кейпов? Без незаменимого теплого предмета, который всегда захватываешь с собой с первых свежих сентябрьских прогулок, и который постепенно дополняется шарфами, свитерами, перчатками и сопровождает до самой зимы.

The model and the pattern of the coat is from BurdaStyle 08/2016 (model 116) but my version is longer for a maximum effect and is checked. Originally thinking to make it in soft diagonal wool in mustard color, I opted for this Harris tweed in soft beige hue with a mix of red, green, blue, black and ochre plaids. After making and wearing the coat, I find that this material suits the model very well. It is warm and light, it has some volume and what is especially crucial for this long model – it does not wrinkle.
