Description

Again a coat from Patrones, I really love it.

Pattern Description:
Double breasted wool coat with a nice collar.

Pattern Sizing:40-44-48 ( spanish sizes). I graded between three sizes , and because of this I`ve made a muslin first, not wanted to ruin my nice wool fabric on a coat that will not fit.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Because in the photo is almost impossible to see something I would say that it looks more like the drawing, in the photo is only good to see that the collar is more wider/bigger and in the drawing is smaller and tighter, well my jacket did turned out like the drawing.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

No ideea, my spanish ,sewing related, is minimal , I used other references for to put the coat together , like the instructions from the “The Ready-to-Wear Tailoring Sew Along” on “pattern scissors cloth”blog.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Like the silhouette, I wanted a coat that I can wear with skirts/dresses and I really like it how it did turn out.
As a dislike it might be that the collar is not so wide as in the model picture
Fabric Used: wool

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Not really alteration but I underlined the back with silk organza and I really love how it gives more body to my outer fabric, first time I used this but surely not the last, the sides panels/front panels and the facings are interfaced with two different kinds of fusible interfacings .
The buttonholes I had to make them by hand as my sewing machine foot could not accommodate the big buttons

Would you recommend it to others?
I highly recommend this pattern.

Conclusion: I am very happy with my new coat

Thank you for reading, x
