The Wimborne Coat – Inspiration

We’ve seen such incredible Wimborne Coats emerging and we’re super excited to share them with you!

This incredible mustard wool coat, made by Christina @ccmadethat on Insta, had us swooning! Christina made size 4 with no modifications and used a boiled wool/viscose blend from Mood Fabrics in the shade golden olive. As the edges of boiled wool don’t fray, the coat doesn’t need to be lined. Look at the sleeve seam match!

Lara @1000stoff on Insta made this beautiful autumn edition. The way she has used the block stripes for this version is incredible. Fabric from @designerleftover in a 100% cotton.

Sheelagh and Fi both came to a sewing weekend and made their Wimborne Coats with me. They are both so incredible! Sheelagh will be flashing that lining to passers by I’m sure ;)

A summer version! Made from a mid-weight linen which holds the cocoon shape beautifully and a contrast binding to add extra interest we love Gabrielle’s incredible style. See her fab Insta at @bibbity-bobbity-buttons

Jenna – @theladywholunches has made perfect version! I feel like every wardrobe should have a coat in fabric like this!

@taukomagazine is such a stunning publication, more of a coffee table book than a magazine, and we’re honoured to be featured in the magazine.

TAUKO Magazine No. 5 is all about soft and comfy wool! The issue features essays of local wool production in Europe and portraits textile artists working with indigenous sheep herds in Denmark and the US. Making use of soft jerseys, wool, padded cotton and linen the sweaters, coats, trousers and dresses come with many variations for differently skilled sewists.

TAUKO Magazine is a pioneering independent print publication for home sewists around the world. The vast horizon of crafts, culture and climate is featured in sewing patterns, interviews, columns, articles, tips and recommendations by international contributors.

All patterns come in 9 sizes from bust width 31” / 78cm to 57.5” / 146cm.

TAUKO is a 128-page collectable that measures in at 275mm high x 215mm wide. There are four folded paper pattern sheets included with the magazine. It is printed in Estonia with a glue and stitch binding to secure durability and easy reading. There are ten patterns included in Issue 5. The patterns will need to be traced.
