|Pattern Description: |
Loose-fitting, lined coat with various closures
8-24, I made View B in a size 14
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I've never made a coat before, and I wanted my first coat pattern to have a full lining, but to be pretty simple in details to give me a chance to figure it out. This pattern fit both of those parameters. Also, I had this crazy fabric that I knew would look best with a simple pattern, and this coat pattern, with its few seams and plain detailing, really allows the fabric to shine.
Crazy black and green houndstooth suiting by Marc Jacobs, acquired on clearance from Fabric Mart. I'm not sure of the fiber content - I got it a while ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No design changes - I pretty much made the coat as it was.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I probably don't need to sew it again, because this is a pretty unusual coat silhouette for me, and I don't think I need more than one of these in my closet. But I'd definitely recommend it for beginner sewists looking to get their feet wet making coats!
I'm happy! I used a fabric that's been burning a hole in my stash, and I've increased my confidence in the coat construction department!
