A Stylish Wool Coat

Ladies, you don't have to choose between warmth and style, even during our hard Minnesota winters! This gorgeous, cozy wool coat made by Treadlette Rebecca is the perfect example.

Rebecca used Simplicity 1254 and a double-sided wool, using the solid side for the coat body and the plaid side to face the collar/hood. A brass zipper and leather clasp add a polished touch. In-seam pockets add a sleek detail, and they're easy to sew.

Stop by Treadle and check out our great selection of wool! We are happy to assist you with pattern and fabric advice so you can create a wonderful, warm, winter coat, too!

Arts and Crafts prints

We have a gorgeous new group of cotton prints designed by Michele Hill for In The Beginning fabrics. Her Arts and Crafts Collection perfectly captures the feeling of the post-Victorian aesthetic, with stylized flowers, birds, and undulating organic forms in rich jewel tones that repeat harmoniously across the designs.
