Coats, coats, coats!

It's that time again, the time of the year when you finally realize you have to pack up all those cute but too light jackets and put into winter storage and take out your winter coat! Perhaps you have to invest in a new coat? I have spent quite a bit of time on research these past weeks, wanting to find that perfect coat, the one I can wear for years. One that will complement my old brown leather coat which is, though lovely, often too warm or too cold... It's perfect for a rainy day.

Anyway, what I was getting to: Some coat inspiration! Less talk and more picures! Here goes:

1920's coats and Butterick pattern, late 20s to early 30s.

Simplicity pattern, ca 1949-1950, Marlene Dietrich and Rita Hayworth

Marilyn Monroe, McCall's pattern ca 1956

Vogue pattern Jacques Klein 1966, Jean Shrimpton

Armani ad in Vogue 1980, Simplicity pattern 1980

Linda Evangelista in Vogue 1991, Vogue pattern Givenchy 1971

Harper's Bazaar November 2012

So... what did I get? Still waiting for it to arrive, I'll show you soon!
