    Tessuti Florence Coat Pattern

    Posted by Sue Smith on 7th Feb 2021

    This is a lovely pattern and is exactly what I was looking for. It is simplicity itself to make but is an excellent cut so the finished article looks stylish and expensive. It sits nicely on the shoulders and with nice, roomy sleeves, is an ideal autumn/winter coat to throw on over a chunky sweater. I made it in mustard boiled wool which looks great over black trousers and sweater. I am a UK size 12 and made it in the Small size. It is a very generous cut though so next time (and there will be a next time!) I will make it in the Petite size. I think it will be fabulous in Winter White.
