I finished the Ichabod Crane style coat last spring but never had a chance to have it modeled. Finally got that done this week.
I wanted to simulate this coat from Sleepy Hollow from Fox TV. I can not afford wool flannel so I went with cotton flannel in a navy blue, it is a bit darker in person, but not much. I changed the collar a bit from the pattern to reflect the costume.
I used Butterick 3072.
I did not put in buttonholes but I may go back later and add them. Ichabod Crane has a very plain coat without any trim so I was trying to copy the plainness of it.
I'm working on breeches and a nice white shirt to go with it. They will also do double duty for Husband's pirate costume
I really like how well the back came out. It is fully lined as well. I have never made a men's coat before so this was a learning experience.
As soon as I get the next two pieces done I will post those pictures as well. Maybe I'll add the dirt for authenticity when he wears it!
