Bae and I where hanging out in Ste-Rose, Laval last weekend. It was a beautiful Saturday. I had been waiting for the weather to cool down to finish this coat, put it on and take pictures for the blog. It was unusually warm in South Quebec these last 2 weeks. Also, I totally lost my sewjo and it lasted a good 3 weeks… Needless to say that I jumped on my sewing machine as soon as the temperature dropped. It was time to finish my only September make (seriously… how did this happen?) and take nice pictures for the blog!
I love to witness the change of color during fall season. These colors are usually the inspiration for my fall wardrobe. This Purple Kasmir Coating Solid fabric was kindly provided by Fabricville for a review on their blog. Read me HERE.
Pattern Description: Very loose-fitting unlined jacket and coat have front that extends into collar, dropped shoulders and side pockets.
Pattern Sizing: 4 to 26. I cut a size 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? It looked different due to weight of fabric.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the length and the fact that is has pockets
Fabric Used: Fabricville Kashmir Coating Solid in purple
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None but I had to adjust do to weight of fabric being different than the recommended fabric!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don’t think I will sew more versions since I have so many other coat patterns to explore!
Conclusion: It is a great coat pattern! However, I will have to wear it with a belt on cooler colder days since it has no closure! Due to fabric weight, mine will not be worn on milder fall days like the original pattern suggested!
Overall, I’m very pleased with my new coat! It is my second year in a row entering into fall with a brand new DIY Fall Coat. Let’s make it a tradition!
Talk to you soon!
