since watching the movie "the tourist", i've been infatuated with the wrap angelina jolie's character wore in the first half; so elegant and warm. when i was in asheville, i picked up 3/4 yd of double faced wool coating with the intention of making something similar.

i wanted it to be reversible, so i sewed the pieces together with a zigzag stitch so there isn't a seam. for some shaping i added a pleat to the back.

the wrap is off centered for flair, and i'm thinking of adding magnets as a closure, but i'm not 100% sure. for now, it's too hot to wear it, so i can keep collecting ideas.


  1. Love the wrap - very elegant but I can see it with jeans, too. Did you make up the pattern yourself?

  2. thanks! i made up the pattern as i went. i wanted to use as much of the 3/4 yd as possible; the only piece i had leftover was from the fold along the front edge. i think it will be versatile when the weather turns; once i figure out the clasp situation!
