Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy, however, I had the dardest time with the two piece sleeve! But it was my fabric, not the pattern at issue.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the stand up collar and the yoke.
Fabric Used: I used a coating wool. This fabric was a nightmare to work with. I have worked with fabric that frays, but when you touched this fabric, you would lose a whole three inches! I rarely think about serging or finishing seams when the item will be lined, but it was a must for this fabric. But, even when I serged the ends, this fabric had a mind of his own. But I did finish the seams because this is what they looked like with just basic handling.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did lengthen the sleeves.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Its such a unique look that I'm not sure I would make it again but I absolutely LOVE this coat.
Conclusion: I love this coat. I have started a little tradition of making a coat each year for my birthday.
This is year #2. I LOVED the hooded swing coat last year, but I think I like this one even better.
When I saw the pattern in Vogue I knew I had to have it. And I wanted the houndstooth fabric. One day while in Hancocks, I was lamenting not being able to find the fabric. One of the employees at the store knows me and said they had the fabric in back. She went to the back and came back with this wonderful fabric! The print of my pattern is a tad bit smaller than the one used by Vogue, but I love it even more! For my birthday last year I made a wrap dress in houndstooth because I was inspired by the Ferragamo 2012 line. I think I have enough houndstooth now - maybe! LOL
And no, I won't wear the two together, although I am tempted!
