Pirate coat

Jan 04, 2010
Article Image

This open-front coat of red and pale gold damask features a fitted bodice lined in a contrasting black and gold brocade, with bias strips of the brocade binding the armholes.  The lower half of the coat is a full sweep of damask, reminiscent of a pirate’s coat.

Pattern placement was carefully considered to best emphasize the damask’s design – note the central medallion on the upper back.

 

I love wearing this with snug jeans or leggings and tall boots.  It makes me feel bold, dashing, and sexy.

    I don't blame you for loving to wear this. Please submit a photo of you wearing it. It looks absolutely dashing--would love to see it with boots!
