Description

Tasia of Sewaholic’s latest pattern, The Robson coat. I was one of the pattern tester.
The pattern recommended to use light to medium weight woven fabrics such as cotton twill or canvas for this coat, but I have something different in my mind. My fabric is polyester with eyelet pattern and certain sheen on it.

I underlined the fabric with rayon lining, carefully basted around each pieces by hand since both layers were quite slippery. This process took quite a long time but I’m glad I did it because it really made the sewing process easy. Per the instruction, all the seam allowances are then enclosed in bias binding. I made my own binding from the lining fabric but a store-bought one would make the process faster.

    I sooooo love it. And you would look so stylish wandering around Robson Street in Vancouver (where the coat gets its name from!) :) xxx Caramia (from Canada)

    This reminds me of the jacket Gemma Arterton wore in Quantum of Solice Some day I hope to make one.

    I wish I could find a better picture: http://www.haironthebrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/gemma-arterton-red-hair-Quantum-of-solace.jpg
