IS IT A BLANKET OR IS IT A COAT?

Anyone know how to make a simple coat (jacket) out of a blanket or throw? I have seen them on people and they are really nice. They look like you basically just fold and sew, the fringe of the throw frames the collar and hem. I appreciate your help and advice! Thank you!! :-)

I think you are looking for a Capote Coat, Made original by Mountain Men and Trappers. http://www.inquiry.net/outdoor/winter/gear/capote.htm

I'm looking for the same thing. In the 80's, you took a throw and with minimal sewing made a coat. I can't find a pattern nor a coat anywhere. They were mostly long.

Sounds like it's a more a cloak than a coat....?
