This ladies coat in a herringbone Harris Tweed is derived from the poacher's coat of yesteryear - its silhouette, however, is a nod to the elegant 'cut-away' coats of the mid C19th. It boasts a block-printed trompe l'oeil lining featuring the poacher's quarry - a hare, an eel and a pheasant in a rich, inky blue. These are pin-stitched, as patches, into the coat's lining - a simple, plain calico - and 'hung' from internal buttons. A coat pocket also hides a large pocket-bag with drawstring - it, too, is block-printed with oak leaves and a clutch of eggs.
The coat is medium-sized (fitting a UK 10-12). Despite being drafted from a gentleman's coat, it retains a feminine silhouette. The front falls long and away to the hips, and the coat sits higher at the back with a generous, single vent at the rear. Details include: curved, darted bodice with a high-backed waistline (creating the 'cut-away' silhouette), vented back, generous lapels, breast pocket and, intentionally, no fasteners - an internal rope belt, in the admirable spirit of 'make do and mend', closes the coat.
The colour is Brown.
All our coats are created by Janet Tristram at Bonfield in rural West Dorset.
