Coco Jacket in wool

Hey everyone. I’ve just come back from a lovely few days in Italy (can I go back?!). Before I went I was busy sewing, so I thought I’d show you what I’ve been up to.


This seems rather unseasonal but I had to make a little jacket for a shoot I was doing with Prima. It needed to be plain and in a wintery fabric. So I decided to try making the Coco Jacket in a lightweight wool.

I haven’t made this jacket in years and was really pleasantly surprised and how quickly it comes together. It was also nice making something that I didn’t have to worry too much about fit.

I got the fabric from my local shop, Mermaid Fabrics. It was about £6 per metre. Bargain! There is some structure to the fabric so it keeps its shape. I also really like it plain without the Chanel-style trim around the neckline and cuffs.


I was a bit boring with the lining, opting for black acetate. Wish I had done something more colourful.

But really pleased with the result overall. It looks a lot more contemporary than the classic Coco and think I will find myself wearing this a lot this autumn! What do you think? Have you started sewing your autumn wardrobe yet?
