Hi there !
I'm going to sew the Origami coat from Lalimaya (Small French pattern company).
I played with my drawing software and I just can't pick a version between the last 4 ones I selected.



So... I put up a small poll.
The vote happens on my French blog, so all numbers will be adding up in one place. I created a special page there for English readers but both “French” and “English” votes are recorded there. Poll for origami coat

You can find the details (Fabrics, pattern) on my English blog : Origami coat : help needed !
Same thing in French : Manteau Origami : votez !

Many thanks in advance for your input.

The designer of the pattern has voted... But I'm not sure I should tell you which one she picked, I don't want to influence you !

I like no.1 with no.2 sleeves!
no, really. But prefer no.1 if you don't want to try doing no.2 sleeves on it.

Version 4 jumped out at me. So I voted for no.4.
Look forward to seeing which ever version you decide upon finished.

Number 2 was my favourite (I voted on your blog).
It's a gorgeous pattern, I'm off to have a look at what else they have. The last French patterns I had on my want-list became unavailable before I got to buying them, so I might take the plunge with this one.

Number Three, The sleeves look much better to me if they are all one color. Don't have to match. Three is definitely slenderizing.

Thank you all for your input !

I agree with all your choices and that's my problem

I'll close the poll on monday.
There are already 96 voters so I guess the vote trend will stay pretty much the same now.
Looks like it's going to be #2 by a good margin. (which was also the choice of the pattern designer by the way).

Mel.J : I suppose you're talking about "Au bonheur des petites mains" ? I was pretty bummed about it also because I didn't get the chance to buy one of their unique patterns before they shut down.

Yes, that was them. I had a long wishlist, but because of the language barrier had decided to wait & see a few reviews. I was surprised (and disappointed) that they disappeared, since their designs were so fabulous.
I suppose it's unrealistic to hope that someone will re-open that business, but I think if the patterns were translated (like Maria did with Shop Onion) they would have a much bigger market.
One day I might have a go at recreating some of the ones I really liked.

Good luck with your coat.
