The Completed Pea Coat!



Readers, my pea coat is finished and you can see me modeling it RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE over at the Mood Sewing Network.

Just click here.

It's cold and gray in NYC today -- perfect weather for snuggling with a couple of chihuahuas and a good book (or an old movie on YouTube).  If you're traveling for the holidays, be safe.

Have a great day, everybody!

  4. Ah-Mah-Zing Peter! The whole outfit is very stylish and I love the cut on your coat, very flattering! I just need a couple of coats "under my belt" and a few shots of tequila and I can feel myself ready for a Japanese pattern challenge!

  11. Yay! It came out great. A labor of love, so wear the hell out of it. I sense that it will only get better with age.

  12. This coat is RIDICULOUS - in a good way. I jumped up and immediately showed my husband, who is also terribly impressed. Wow, wow, wow - I love it.

  18. Peter! Beautiful job!! I know you went through the wringer with this project, but the end results was so worth it! Whenever I need to get my sewing mojo jumpstarted I go to my book "Halston - An American Original" and your blog. You know you just inspired a lot of people to grab the bull by the horns and get sewing!! I hope you have a great and restful Thanksgiving!! I'm sure the dogs are happy you're finished and can give them your full attention.......the cat whose apartment I live in, never fails to "sample" my fabric when I lay it out or insists on wrapping herself around the machine as I'm sewing!! LOL!! Thank goodness for spray bottles!! Ceerio!

  20. You look fantastic in that coat-- so elegant, and the styling was perfect. The whole look is very expensive.

  21. The coat is wonderful - and from diagrams only! And you look great in it. I may stop hesitating on ordering some Japanese language only books, instead of waiting/hoping to find them in Egnlish. I'm not $ure if that'$ a good thing or not.

  22. Love everything about this coat. I think this is one of your best menswear projects. It looks great on you.

  23. Beautiful, beautiful job. The coat looks great!

  24. Great coat, you should be proud. There is one thing though, I avoid like the plague those inner pockets that cross the divide between lining/facing. It makes replacing a lining an utter nuisance.
