My mother loves this look...Any pattern suggestions out there? The coat looks like it has princess seams and a shawl collar with a center front closure. I seem to remember a butterick wardrobe pattern with a sheath dress and long jacket combo. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

it reminds me very much of the pattern of Mrs Obama's dress from the inaugeration. I think all of the big 4 had a version. I don't recall any numbers right now though - sorry.

Check Simplicity 2552 and Butterick 5396. They were both issued after Mrs. Obama's Inaugural stroll. They both have dresses and jackets.

Thanks for the replies. However, I was hoping for a more formal look - I don't think my mom wants a tie front as in the swearing-in ceremony look of Michelle Obama.

I have been searching and I've yet to find in the current pattern collection a basic princess seamed jacket with a center-front single button closure and shawl collar. I figure that is the real bones of the look and I can just extend the hemline to a coat length. Any takers?
