A classic trenchcoat in two lengths
36-44, I cut a 38 grading to 42 at the hip
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think it does.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Not exactly easy, but read them carefully and it will work out.
I didn't exactly follow the order of work, but made all the small pieces first, so I could get them made perfectly. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I wanted a classic trench which this is.
Scarlet waterproof linen and red/grey lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a narrow shoulder alteration and also removed some width from the back shoulder. I may have overfitted a bit.
I added a lining to the back yoke, and added loops to the sleeve tabs as they were flopping about.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I probably won't need another one for a while, but I would recommend it. Conclusion:
