I don't remember exactly how much fabric I used, but I think I used about a quarter yard more than what the pattern suggested. I find PR patterns make you buy about a half yard extra on average. I generally buy a half yard short, unless I have a plaid or directional pattern on the fabric, and just hope I bought enough.

Great job! I have this pattern and can't wait to do it. I will probably do it next year, winter is coming to an end (I hope, lol!)

Your coat is so nice and your plaid-matching and placement is spot-on. Well done!

How much fabric did this require? I'm asking because I've read that many Project Runway patterns ask for more than is needed.

Your coat is beautiful! I really like the way you used some plaid on the bias.
