|Pattern Description: |
MISSES' COAT AND BELT: Semi-fitted, partially interfaced, lined coat has collar, collar band, shoulder pads, yokes, and two-piece sleeves. Topstitching. A and B: side pockets. C: seam detail, welt pockets, sleeve tabs, loops for tab and self belt.
I made view A
Combinations: A5(6-8-10-12-14), E5(14-16-18-20-22)
I made a size 12 with 1" added for length in the body and the sleeves.
I have it on with a sleeveless dress but there is plenty of room for a light sweater and/or blouse.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I thought I looked very much like the drawing and pattern envelope.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were good but I used my book "The Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket - Tailoring" it was very helpful and concise on step-by-step instructions to tailor a jacket.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the look of the jacket, slimmer cut for spring and I liked the option of no belt.
Fabric Used: a linen-cotton blend from Mood Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I interfaced the entire piece with Fashion Sewing Supply interfacting. I also added a back stay, shoulder reinforcement, roll line and other tailoring steps as stated in the book I used.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again in the future but will wait for awhile, I need some quick projects! It is a good pattern with a nice fit.
Here is a blog post with more pictures and links to other blogposts with my construction steps.
I love my new coat!
