Another one ticked of the seasonal sewing list - here's my winter coat: the Named Clothing Yona
Wrap Coat. This one was a challenge, and whilst I like it very much and it grows on my every day, I couldn't quite call it my 'dream coat'. In fact, I have no idea what I would actually define to be a 'dream coat', so considering that, it's not turned out too bad for a first effort. Plus it's made up in lovely fabrics and colours, and in more practical terms... it's warm!

I would like to add some sort of discreet fastening to hold it closed at the centre front - what do you think would be the best option?

I feel like I could get at least one more use out of the Yona Pattern - it would be totally perfect (wrap belt included!) to replicate this velvet jacket in Zara at the minute. And in terms of general future coat sewing, I think new techniques such as welt pockets will be on the to-try list for next time - see Crab and Bee's Yona alteration for inspiration!
