|Pattern Description: |
Invest some time in Albion to create a classic duffle style coat (version 1) or jacket (version 2). Each version features toggle closures, tailored two-piece sleeves, yoke details, and a stylish three-piece hood. Version 1 is a mid-thigh length coat with patch pockets, in-seam pockets, a detachable hood tab, and flannel lining. Version 2 is a hip-length unlined jacket with a combination of felled and bound seams, in-seam pockets, and interior pockets. Albion is a versatile, simple shape that transitions easily from menswear to women’s wear. (from Colette website)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. I also followed the online sewalong on Colette's website which provides very clear photos and further explanation of construction steps.
Wool boucle coating and wool flannel lining. The coating is interlined with another layer of wool flannel, which makes 3 layers of wool. Yes, it's incredibly warm, but I needed it!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Narrowed the shoulders
Shortened the length of coat and sleeves
Substituted in-seam pockets (from Vogue 8346)
Added elastic casing to sleeve lining
Added piping at yokes, patch pockets, and sleeve tabs
Added a separating zipper at center front
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh yes, this is a classic style that I will hold on and almost certainly make again. I do recommend the pattern.
