I was browsing the Garnet Hill catalog today and I found the winter coat I want to copy. You can see it Eileen FIsher Jacket here I have some lovely wool from Fabric Mart (intended to sew last year and didn't get to it -what a surprise!) You can see a better picture here picture of catalog page

Any ideas what pattern I might use as a starting off point? I am a plus size, but the style looks pretty simple and would easilly work in a Plus size. It looks as though the edges are pretty much left unfinished so I wouldn't need a facing.

Barb, are you talking about that chocolate brown boiled wool from last season at Fabric Mart?
I wonder if there is a good pattern in any of the back issues of BWOF. Do you take it?

I love this. What does that sleeve look like to you? Is it a set in?
I don't see a seam there.

How about B4029. It's got the same dropped shoulder, same collar, same straight silhouette & a patch pocket. HTH

Kwik Sew 3014 is similar. You could use the length of view A with the collar of view C.

Yes I have that Chocolate Boiled Wool. I also get BWOF and have for years maybe I will browse though them. If I make something from them then I have made it even more cost effectively. :)

I also own CJ's Easy coat so that might work.

I like that Kwik Sew pattern too, I have been eyeing it for a while now.

Any suggestions for edge finish. It seems when I look at the clothing in the stores they show a simple serged edge in matching thread. I think the boiled wool would take an even simpler finish -such as just cutting and leaving it. These unfinished edges kind of get the classic sewer in me, I just look at the clothes and think, how cheap. However, it does seem to be the style right now.

Nikki created a gorgeous piece with her boiled wool. Here is the link to her review, however, her images aren't loading up for me. Hope you have better luck

I happen to like the unfinished edges. Just wanted to point out that I think that coat has only a button at the top. Since I see you live in NY, you may want to change that.

BarbC,

This Simplicity might work. If you like the raw-edge finish for boiled wool or fleece, it would be simple just to ignore the collar and front facings, just using the main pattern pieces.
