Very loose fitting coat, lined with a stand up collar Pattern Sizing:
A-J Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
The finished coat did look like the pattern, but I made the sleeves longer Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were clear and very easy to follow What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the drape of the coat, there is plenty of room in the sleeve area to wear layers underneath, but it is peg at the bottom to give a narrower look. Fabric Used:
I used black boucle for the main coat, a remnant of grey wool as the contrast, and a black and white lining Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lengthened the sleeves which meant I used way more fabric, but it is worth it. If I were to make it again I would listened to Sandra's advice in the pattern and lower the height of the collar Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This coat is such a distinctive design I don't think I would have two in my wardrobe at the same time. However when this one wears out I will definitely make another. I enjoyed the process of sewing it.
I would most certainly recommend it to others Conclusion:
