Some styles are more of the moment. This Issey Miyake was published by Vogue in 1993. Many designs are timeless. I have had my eye on this coat pattern for several years. Finally it is mine.
Issey Miyake patterns always feature interesting construction detailing. This one will be a foray into welt pockets and an under arm gusset. I know better what to do to make the coat warmer than the last coat I made. There will be some warmth added with an underlining and possibly a different fleeced back lining. All in all, it will be a wonderful project for winter 2011-2012.
