Anthropologie’s Skirted Peacoat by Idra (Style# 910303, orig $168) got mixed reviews on the site. Mixed reviews aside, many of the sizes were sold out in the blue. That’s fine as I was interested in this brown color they call gold. It also came in regular & petite sizes.
Size 4P – The fit was great. Well…as you can see…it didn’t work out. The sleeves & shoulders were perfect. I really wanted it to work. If felt so good & comfortable on. I didn’t want to take it off. I think in some of the online reviews people mention that they thought it would be corduroy. The velveteen fabric they used was fine. Corduroy would have been too heavy, esp w/the tulle undercoat. Sigh. I really wanted this to work.
If you make this again in both regular & petite sizes in a cotton fabric — with the tulle — I will buy it. You are probably aware that you need to adjust the fit. Maybe the skirt shouldn’t be so gathered….and the torso should be longer or the skirt part needs to be longer. One or the other. Or scrap that altogether. Idra, maybe if you make it go to the knee, in an ever-so-slight A-line — with the tulle underneath.
