Description

This is a very easy pattern for a coat from Vogue. It has only 4 pattern pieces ( front, back, sleeve & pocket ). The pattern is for an unlined coat but I added lining. What I liked most about it is how easy it was to sew and construct. Is perfect for a beginner. The only tricky part was the lining and trying to figure out where to add extra cuts so I can have the lining in 3 different fabrics. I eliminated the back seam ( it was almost a strait line anyway so I didn’t seen the point of having it ). I cut the cuffs from the pattern and made them in different color and fabric. The buttons are dressed in black fleece and are not functional ( it closes with inside hand sewn snaps ) . I overlapped the front the wrong way but I don’t care so much about that so I left it like that.

Material Notes

No idea what exactly the yellow fabric is, the back one is flannel fleece and the polka dots lining is sateen.

    Fabulous coat! Love the fabrics combination, especially the lining. BTW, besides shaping, the center back seam also provides structural support, especially for wool and other loose weave fabrics that might sag over time.

      Thanks for the info! I am quite new to all this and I don’t have any formal training in this area so I really don’t know staff like that. I will keep that in mind for the future.
