Pattern Description: Overzized coat with 3/4 kimono sleeves with gussets. Fully lined. Front closure with one bound buttonhole and 3 big snaps
Two front inseam pockets

Pattern Sizing: Plus size 44 to 52. I used size 48 which is true to my measurements

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so as far as I can tell despite my fabric choice. me wearing the coat open

Were the instructions easy to follow? Not realy as that type of project is hard to complete without any illustrated instruction
My copy of Tailoring: The Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket was very helpful for the bound buttonhole and the interfacing as well as to allow for turn of cloth of collar

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the vintage style details such as bound buttonhole with oversize button, gussets, 3/4 length kimono sleves and and the fact that it is roomy and easy to wear for commuting everyday
I love, love the luscious satin lining

Fabric Used: A warm but rather light weight blend of wool coating

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None but shortening the sleeves and length by 2 inches

Would you sew it again? no one is enough for a unique design But I would you recommend it to others all the more so that it passed the wearing test today. The sleeves make it very comfortable to wear and move freely.

Conclusion: I love the coat very much indeed. You can read my blogpost here
