    Wow, I am very impressed, this is a gorgeous coat. I would also love to see the pattern, and thank you for your tip about the book.

    Wow, thanks for all your encouraging comments! I’d be happy to upload the pattern except I don’t know how to because it was drafted by hand on newspaper.

    I didn’t use a drafting block for this because I haven’t worked out how to draft raglan sleeves yet. The basic lines were traced off a raglan-sleeve sweatshirt. Then adjustments were made to accommodate a front opening, wider sleeves (because I have chubby upper arms), and a wider neckline (because I didn’t want the collar to be up against my neck).

    @Casey: I’ve found “Dorothy Moore’s Pattern Drafting and Dressmaking” to be an easy-to-follow book on how to draft blocks using your body measurements, and how to use those blocks to make suit and dress patterns. It was printed in the 70s but the techniques are still used today. You can buy a copy off ebay or amazon (mine was $15).
