I made this coat as a gift for a friend who’s expecting her first child in January. She picked out the gorgeous green wool coating and designer lining and we made two muslins before making the final coat!
I underlined it with black cotton flannel for extra warmth, and made bound buttonholes on the front, and inside, I catchstitched ALL the seam allowances down so everything stays nice and flat and doesn’t bunch up as she moves. One nice “safety” feature I built into the back was to stitch the box pleat together for several inches, but if Holly should need the extra room over the next two months, I told her to just take a seam ripper and open up that pleat. It’ll mean the side seams are slightly distorted, but at least the bump will be covered!
