These fashionable and trendy winter coats weren't purchase from the department store, nor were they ordered online. Each of these coats were sewn by the sewing blogger wearing the garment! Yep, these models are ordinary seamstresses! Hopefully they will inspire you to sew and create your own. I know I'm inspire by them!

Margo stepped outside of her comfort zone in order to create this elegant, hooded wool coat. Boy, are we glad that she did! Because everything about it from its animal print lining to her color choice screams sophisticated chicness!
This oversize, edgy, yet classy coat was sewn using a Marilla Walker pattern. Meg, from turned this street style into a garment that emits class and refinement while maintaining its downtown vibe.
There are clothing that never goes out of style, and that's exactly what Anita created. Her bold, well constructed, polished, red pea coat is timeless. If you are interested in getting a hold of the same fabric so you too can create a dashing garment, links are included in her blog as well as a comparison chart that compares the price of her garment with that of department stores' retail price.
Michelle likes this gray waterfall coat because of it's appeal to her vintage side. However, my admiration stems from it being just plain ole fabulous! She made some slight adjustments that are worth taking note of to get the professional look that she obtained.
I have been following Nikki of Beauty J'adore for the longest and freaking love about everything she makes. This cocoon coat was made using wool, but at first glance I could have sworn it was neoprene because of its great structure and shape! With her glasses on, she looks like a fly, fashionable undercover agent or secret spy.

I know if time wasn't an issue, you would probably like to sew all of them. But being that eternity isn't yet on our side, what two looks would you like to sew? Also, which look inspires you?
As for me, the Lisette pattern is on my que of patterns to sew, just waiting for the perfect fabric to inspire me. I have a white wool sitting that I keep thinking about using. Secondly, would be the Marilla Walker, because I look the street-style look. I would make it colorful and maybe stitch an animal like a cat on it for some fun.
