Inspired by a coat Emma Thompson wore in the 1995 film adaptation of Sense & Sensibility, this is an everyday coat Jane Austen would have worn for going to town or strolling the garden. An easy band pattern gives body and texture to the lower half. An unusual design feature is the corded edging for the center fronts, collar, and lapels. The edge is worked as an applied I-cord; corners are joined by grafting stitches together. Blocking, accomplished through light steaming and wet-blocking, is especially important for the collar and lapels.
