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!

This great pattern create two versions of the classic duffle style coat each with toggle closures, tailored sleeves, yoke details and three-piece hood – well worth the extra effort you’ll invest in this make.
And, finally, if you needed anymore reasons to love the Albion Duffle coat, how about if I were to tell you that this design can also be made up for men.
