Subject: Have you seen a pattern like this? Date: 11/8/11 8:07 PM

I've been looking for a plus size raincoat for a few years. I'll be honest - I'm picky. As a size 2x, I'd like it to look nice, not dumpy, and I'm hoping I don't have to settle for a trench coat. I've been actively searching, without much luck. I heard there was a great sale at Lord & Taylor - found this lovely coat - but out of my price range even on sale. $223 on sale from $398! It isn't even a raincoat! Argh!

To me, it looks slightly A-line, high collar, fitted shoulders, shoulder pads. Those are the points I like the best.

The actual coat lines and collar height & lines are what are most important, as I don't think I can alter those. I do think I can point or shape the collar if it isn't exactly the same. I'd probably add some sort of front closure, and I'd bring the sleeves down to the wrists.

Note: I am not affiliated with Lord & Taylor or Eileen Fisher in any way, nor will I profit from posting this design.

If you have seen a pattern like this (or have ideas), please let me know!

Peggy Sagers last night's webinar was on making "Trench Coats", part 1 last night part 2 in 2 or 3 weeks???? She has on her website a couple of kits - one is a trench coat changed to single breasted. You might want to check it out. The webinar last night showed how she changed up her trench coat pattern to make different styles of coats. D

You can view her previous webinars, the are listed on the home page of her website on the right side. Good luck. The coat is lovely, btw.

can you get to L&T and snoop shop? Try it on in a dressing room and take some phone photos of design features you like. Helps the ole memory -- particularly with how they handled darts, finished inside, etc

forgot to mention----I love the coat

I'd personally look for a vintage pattern- it has that vintagey flair.

Here is a link to the Peggy Sagers video Video

You can borrow the wing collar from Vouge 7976 which is out of print but can found on ebay for a reasonable price. I borrowed the wing collar from V7976 for this jacket. In the photo, I'm wearing the wing collar with the back folded down, but all you would have to do is flip the back up, and it would look just like the collar of your Lord & Taylor coat.

Vogue 1060 also has a similar wing collar.

As far as the coat itself goes, Vogue 2852, which is out of print but available on ebay, might be a reasonable place to start. The sleeves are set-in, and you can lengthen them and the body of the jacket. You would also need to draft your own lining, but that wouldn't be hard to do with instructions from books like the Easy Guide to Sewing Jackets. Good luck.

Lekala - which has the advantage of you being able to get the pattern custom sized - has a couple of patterns that might work

Hi mariejessie,I'm a big fan of Paco Peralta (Spanish couture)- he has a jacket really similar to your image. Try looking at his site http://www.etsy.com/listing/60870440/unique-jacket-pattern

You'll have to lengthen it & Paco's patterns only do s,m,l, but he might help you out.

Love the look by the way - good luck.

I wish I could get to L & T to snoop shop! The closest store is probably 2 hours away, and I presently don't drive that far due to illness.

Edit: Then again I could purchase the coat mail order, examine it, and return it....too evil?

Thanks ConnieBJ, nancy2001, Pinkytoo and SewRuth!

ConnieBJ, it does have a vintage flair, with a bit of an update. Thanks for the link to the video - to be honest I went to look for it, and I couldn't find it for the life of me!

Nancy2001, love the resulting jacket and outfit too! The collar to the fisrt two vogue patterns are a good match, the second looks a bit closer, but the first pattern could be adapted for the entire coat. Adding ease, enlarging the collar and a bit of an A-line to the body of the coat might just do it. Thanks for the offer to borrow the pattern, but I think I'll buy it! Isn't eBay great?

Pinkytoo: wow, I'd not heard about Lekala patterns before. I just spent an hour surfing her website!

SewRuth: Thanks for the referral to Paco Peralta. He has some lovely patterns, and a great blog. I'm really tempted to purchase a pattern to get the free blouse pattern offered this month too!
