Style Sunday: The Duffle Coat

If there is one thing I love about winter, it’s wrapping up an a cosy coat and heading out into the cold for a hike.

Now, one style of coat that will never go out of style is the Duffle coat – let’s face it, if Paddington Bear can rock this look so can we!

This classic cut duffle from Asos, £85, is made from a thick yet soft wool blend and, yup, you guessed it, it got me to thinking about how to go about making this for myself – so, never fear, you want to make your own Duffle Coat, here’s everything you need to know!
