Pattern Description:
A gorgeous oversized flounce collar cascades around the neck while one statement button holds the coat closed. The coat is fully lined with princess seams that provide shaping and in seam pockets to keep your hands warm. View A is designed to hit at the knee. View B is a longer winter version and hems at mid calf.

Pattern Sizing:
2-24, I cut the size 10 even though by the chart I am a size 8. I cut it this size to give more room for layering, as it's a fashion coat- not a winter coat.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?The whole coat is machine sewn. You slip stitch the bound buttonhole front to the facing and then you only have to sewn the button- everything else is done on your sewing machine. No hand sewing any lining. Basically, once all the pieces are cut out, the sewing goes really quick for a coat.

Fabric Used: I used a cotton sateen. I wanted a Fall coat.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added to the side seam of both the outer and lining pieces on the side and then added to the back neck for a forward neck adjustment. I didn't do an FBA but I should've lowered the bust apex- it's really high.

The sleeves are on the tighter side and while they fit the lighter layers, they won't fit any thicker winter layers. But again, it's not meant to be a winter coat.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I do recommend it to others. You'll learn how to sew in a coat lining by machine which you can apply to any other coat pattern. I will be sewing the shorter version in a wool.

Conclusion: Great stylish coat. I thought it would just be a wearable muslin as I was a tester but I found myself wearing it all the time. I haven't worn anything else since I made it!
