Description

This was a Christmas present for my sister who always wanted a red coat. It took several months to make as Ive never made something this big before but I was surprised at how relatively straight forward it was. Its a Vogue pattern 8346VOG from sewngpatterns.com
Its red wool suiting fabric with royal blue lining, inseam pockets and military buttons. Fortunately she liked it :-)

    I’m thinking of buying this pattern and I was wondering how well it fit? Is it close fitting?

      yes it fits really well actually, and as its princess seams the whole way round and down its really easy to shape to your body..i found it a good straight forward pattern to follow too. x
