Misses' Coat Pattern Sizing:
8-16 (I made a 10) Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, apart from my choice to o buttons instead of toggles Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, it's a Very Easy Vogue pattern, I think someone with little or no sewing experience could sew this pattern. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked that it was super fast and uncomplicated. I have never sewn thick fabrics as I have only recently upgraded from my John Lewis Mini to a Bernette, so I was a bit scaredy. I don't normally go for non fitted looks, but this looked kind of 60s and I liked it. For some weird reason they want you to line the sleeve separately and then sew them in. I didn't want my seams to show, so I lined the whole coat then hand sewed the lining at the cuffs. Fabric Used:
Crazy mystery wool from Ditto fabrics. Bit of a picnic blanket look to it. Also used some nasty cheap polyester lining (oh the regrets), and micro fleece to interline. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Just the sleeve lining thing, the addition of interlining and buttons instead of toggles. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would like to sew the hooded view in a red waxed cotton with a liberty print lining for Spring. Conclusion:
Very fun little pattern for an afternoon sew.
