I'm trying to make this coat for a friend of mine. He is usally a size 44 (in chest, neck, sleeve, etc.), exept for his waist wich is a size 46. I'm having difficulty deciding where the waistline is so I'm not sure at what height I should enlarge the pattern. Can anyone help me?

I made the rode for an Evangelist, in a white polyester (owner purchased the fabric), the instructions were easy to follow, i did not line the upper torso (just too hot here so. fla), but I too would suggest using a twill or a bottom weight cotton.

I have recently purchased this pattern! I was debating what fabric to use. After reading the review, I think I've narrowed it down to poplin or twill...any suggestions?

I want to make a cassock for myself and I've never made anything from a pattern.. always been my Mum that made things for me. I saw a simplicity pattern.. maybe that would be a better option for a noob?

Any chance someone who's done this can give me some pointers? I foolishly chose this as my first pattern project since I was a teenager.

I do enjoy the photo, all husband politics aside! I think I have the pattern around, and will take another look at it...hmm, got to be some fantastic fabric I can use around here somewhere...

sorry for the delays - I finally updated the photo link. And um, and the guy modeling is not my husband now *LOL*.

Devantier, you need to re-post the project photo! I want to see how the coat looks when it's done well!

Devantier is right: I was pretty much a beginner when I started, and this pattern was a BAPTISM BY FIRE! Plus, I imitated the cover and used black vinyl! For some reason, I just couldn't get it to fit my 10-year-old son. Another Butterick (BOYS") pattern worked fine for my 6-y-o son in a size 5; however, this NEO pattern was unisex. The size 12 should have fit my older son, but it didn't. I suspect that it's sized for GIRLS, because the A view (the primary view) is a gown. Tne Neo option is view B. I did OK with their lining instructions. The sleeve finishing could have been clearer, though.

Wow! Great coat, excellent picture! Looks fabulous.

Wow, thanks everyone! That's actually my husband modelling (everyone in my family is subjected to this). I kept making him spin to get the flair. Then he whined he was getting dizzy so I told him to spin the other way :P You should see him model my Superman costume, it's funny! I take the pics with my digital camera and just edit out the backgrounds in Photoshop.

HeHeHeHe! I'm giggling and squirming with delight at this review and the fabric anaylsis. More! More!

Fabulous coat! On the wool blend version yoiu made, what type of wool fabric was it - also a twill? And the fiber content of your favorite version? It is truly a fabulous costume, I have always passed up the "religious" wear section of the costume books. Now I see what I have been missing.

Just *who" is that modelling your coat? Who took the photo? You are one talented--and adventurous--seamstress.

I would never have guessed from the pattern picture that you'd get that type of skirt - looks fantastic!
