Lined fitted coat has double-breasted buttoned or snap closing. Princess seams and shoulder pads.
12-14 I used the size 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes I made view A
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I found the instructions very clear and easy to follow. I did not follow the instructions for lining the coat instead I used Sandra Betzina method for bagging the lining.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the doubled breasted front and also how the coat has a little swing to it.
I wool blend fabric that I bought at our local Hancock Fabrics store.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made this up in a size 12 but ended up taking in the seams for a better fit so I think I could have gone with the size 10. I also took out about half inch of ease out of the sleeve cap. I added a back stay to help the coat keeps it shape and also interface the sleeve cap.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would like to sew this again in the longer version. This is a easy coat pattern with nice results so give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by I'm off to cut out a couple of knit dresses! After making my coat something quick and easy sounds just about right :)
