Green Fleece Coat: A.K.A. “Laundry Blues”… McCall’s 9576

Green Fleece Coat: A.K.A. “Laundry Blues”… McCall’s 9576

McCall’s 9576 2 Hour Reversible Jacket©1998 (2 hours my foot…). ~:^O

I made this reversible fleece coat a handful of years ago with a matching reversible hat. My friend really liked it…. she wanted it! Personally, I considered it quite simple and unflattering; but it did keep me warm and machine washed like a dream! (I HATE dry “cleaning” chemicals.). Anyway; the fabric was a ‘no-pill’ polyester that always looked like new and never seemed to wear out.

I lengthened it for a coat instead of a shorter jacket, and used two colors/layers of the no pill fleece. If were to make another, I’d re-fashion the shawl collar to be closed to the neck and chest for better coverage in the cold weather. I’m thinking about making another one from some coating I have stashed.

Sadly, I no longer have it. My washing machine broke down and I had to use the local laundromat to wash my things. Understandably,(eyes rolling, here), I left it behind one day and it ended up being, “lost in a backroom flood…” said the Owner. Sure. Ok.

Ah well: I do believe someone is enjoying my coat somewhere,

Hmmnnn… maybe I ought to pay my old friend a visit… she was green with envy, though

HEY! Ya never know! HAHAHAHAHA!

  1. Noooo! You’ll have to make another as the perfect coat is a rare thing indeed. It will be even more perfect now you know the small alterations you need to make. Good luck:)
