Always wanted to learn to sew your own coat but nervous to go it alone? Intro to Sewing Coats is the course for you!

The Chloe Coat is a classic coat with simple details and an exquisite finish. With lined patch pockets, a pretty rounded neck and detachable scarf, it’s easy to wear, versatile and looks great with any outfit.

The Chloe Coat fastens either with an open-ended zip, or press studs for a 60’s vibe. It’s tailored at the shoulders and fully lined for a beautiful finish on the inside and a perfectly structured coat on the outside. Designed to be semi-loose fitting yet flattering, the Chloe Coat is fitted to your shoulders, and shaped at the front with a long cut-away dart.
