Pattern Description: Loose-fitting jacket or coat has collar variations and topstitching. A and B: lined, side pockets, and asymmetrical snap closing. C: stitched hem on sleeves, and belt. C and D: unlined, side front pockets,and purchased optional bias tape to finish raw edges.

I made view B with the high collar.

Pattern Sizing: XS (4-6) - XXL (24-26)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? No, the collar was so high it came above my chin. I modified where the snaps were located so that it closed differently and I folded the collar down.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the collar and that it is a lined coat.

Fabric Used: A heavy weight cotton blend that was in the Home Dec department at Joann Fabrics.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I cut a M (12-14) but it was HUGE. I ended up taking in all of the seams by 1" and it was much better. I took out the pockets during that adjustment.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would not sew it again. It was a lot of work for such a disappointing finish with the collar not working out as shown on the pattern. I would recommend it because it is a different look, but be cautious of the ease and the collar issue.

Conclusion: I love my coat and will enjoy wearing it. I especially love my fabric choices (fabric & lining).

I love your coat and a great fix on the collar. Thanks for the note on ease. I am getting *really* tired of finding that patterns are so much bigger than I need them to be...if I tried making something in "my size," I would look like I had no shape at all to my body.

The fabric design is so busy it is hard for me to appreciate the sewing and coat. Picking green for the lining was a stroke of genius. I like the pattern but I think the fabric would suit a chair better.

I love the high high contrast graphic design on the outside and the green lining is absolutely wonderful. The Big 4 ease thing is so inconsistent it makes me nervous every time I start a pattern. The collar looks great. I would not know that you had problems looking at it on you.

Wow, what a fabulous coat!! Love the fabric and the green lining! Would never know the pattern had problems looking at the finished coat. May I ask, did you interline the coat with anything for extra warmth, and if so, what?

Hi Auntie Shel, thank you for your nice comments. I did not interline it with anything as the fabric is very heavy weight in and of itself. I wanted this for a late winter/early spring coat here in the northeast.
