Icebreaker Mayfair Coat.
By shortshadow September 20, 2011
This coat is amazingly beautiful. That said, it is built with a very specific body type in mind. For those who are petite (shorter measurements from shoulder to bust and from bust to waist) than "normal" sizes, this coat is not designed with us in mind. Additionally, the fit says "slim" and it's absolutely true. I don't believe this is designed for "curvier" women. HOWEVER, if you have the body type, this coat IS beautiful. The fabric is soft, smooth, and truly touchable. The interfacing is a bit stiff (almost "crinkly") and the lining is lovely. If you've got the body, this is the coat. If you don't... well, it's still a great coat; however, I don't think any amount of tailoring would help. Great price on SAC, not sure I'd part with the full price even if it fit perfectly. Sadly, back it goes. :(
