Turkish Coat by Folkwear

A favorite with quilters and clothing artists, this coat originated in Central Asia, where it is made in brilliant silks and floral cottons. The boot-length reversible coat is perfect for inventive fabric combinations. The coat hangs closed in the front without fastenings. It features a quilted or trapunto border at the hem, neckline, and front opening. The boarder finish is typically echoed in the cuffs and welts over handslits, which are common in traditional Turkish outerwear instead of pockets. The sleeves are roomy and slightly tapered and the coat has underarm gussets and side panels.

Instructions for trapunto designs are included for all borders and for a decorative square patch at the side hemline (it can be extended over the entire coat if desired). The body of the coat can be hand or machine quilted as well as the boarders.   Although, A lovely simple-sew version of the coat is also included and can be made with pre-quilted fabric.
