Bianca Coat | Sew Me Something
Designer: Sew Me Something
Format: Printed paper
Size: UK 8 - 22

This loose fit “coatigan” has a dropped shoulder line to add ease and comfort, with turn backed sleeves for a casual feel. The square edged shawl collar drapes into a waterfall front or it can wrap over to create a double breasted look.
This Bianca is from the Taming of the Shrew and is the younger sister of the the sharp tongued Kate. Sweetness and light, chaste and obedient - or so she would have everyone believe! Not allowed to marry before her sister, she is frustrated by her older sister’s inability to hold her tongue and find a husband. So she makes the most of duping her father into thinking she prefers her studies and eventually runs off with her lover Lucentio.
It only goes to show you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. The Bianca Coat is deceptively simple to make yet stylish and works in both heavy woven and knit fabrics.
