A wool coat is my handmade holy grail. One day I would love to make a perfectly tailored, beautifully lined, timeless classic that I can wear into my golden years. Until that (I fear distant) day, I'd like to make all of these simpler, relaxed coats. Any one of these lovely styles would make a great top layer over a tissue weight tee, or a thick wool pull over.

Genoa Tote by Blogless Anna - While I own more substantial handbags, I carry an I heart Philly tote bag nearly every day. I'm beginning to accept the fact that old habits die hard, and instead of buying another lovely leather handbag I won't use, I should make my own (more respectable) tote bag.
DIY Cape-Scarf by SweetKM (ahem, me) for Petit a Petit + Family - As soon as the Robert Kaufman Mammoth Flannel is back in stock anywhere in the universe, I'm going to start churning out scarves. I wear the sample a ton, and would like another for myself, and half a dozen as lightning fast Christmas gifts.
These styles are will be making their way through my sewing machine in the next few weeks. What's at the top of you must-sew list this winter?
