|Pattern Description: The pattern includes both a pant and jacket pattern. The jacket is double breasted, with 2 piece sleeves and cuffs. Front flaps and a back belt complete the jacket.|
Pattern Sizing: The size range for this jacket is 8 to 24. I made a 12.
Likes/dislikes: I love the style, the collar, the 2-piece sleeve, the cuff the back belt and on and on. There were no dislikes, well, except for the fact it took me forever to make it.
Changes: I added 1” to the body and 1” to the sleeves. I could have eliminated the sleeve length but it is fine. I would rather have my sleeves a bit too long than too short.
I also used Fashion Sewing Supply interfacing to underline the entire jacket and to interface the required pieces. I followed some of the tailoring suggestions found online to make my jacket better.
Fabric: A wool purchased from Fabric Mart with a project in mind but I did not get to that project. This wool blend was laundered by mistake after purchasing this fabric. It didn’t hurt it much, just made it beefier and a bit spongy. Erica’s review was perfect timing, I desperately needed buttons for my jacket and she had purchased her button’s from Mood Fabrics. I ordered these buttons for my coat and they were the perfect ones for my coat.
Conclusion: I really love my coat, it might be bit big but I am wearing it with a very lightweight blouse, so with a sweater it might be just right. I do like the longer sleeves and the color is wonderful for mid-winter.
I would love to make another one in a classic darker color, maybe next year!
I got out to take pictures just before dark and a bit before the freezing rain came.
