It's time to look forward to fall fashions and I found this lovely coat:

This is the Gucci Leather Single-breasted Coat.  I just love it!  However, I don't love the price which is $5,600.00.  I wonder how many skins it would take to recreate this lovely coat.  I suppose you don't really need to use skins a faux leather of some type would probably be just fine.  Here's a pattern that would give a similar look:

This is the Dakota Duster by Serendipity Studio.  It would give a similar look to the inspiration coat and faux suede is listed as one of the fabrics.

Let's move on the jacket under the coat:

Doesn't this look like a classic blazer pattern?  I don't think that it is really a classic jacket but it certainly looks nice.  This is the Gucci Kaleidoscope Light Wool Single-Breasted Blazer.  Price tag:  $1750.00.  Here's a similar jacket:

This is Kwik Sew 3715.  This is a classic lined blazer pattern.  The difference I see between the inspiration photo and the Kwik Sew pattern is the lapel is slightly different and the pockets are lower.  Let's move to the pants: 

This is the Gucci Kaleidoscope Wool 1960s skinny pant.  These pants have a 7" leg opening.  Price tag:  $795.00.   Here's a pattern that would give you a similar look:

This is the Clover slim pant pattern by Colette.

Hope you're inspired to make something wonderful for fall.

Happy Stitching!
