I AM Patterns
£11.50 – £18.50
Buy the Merlin Coat sewing pattern from I AM Patterns. I am Merlin, a lapel coat to brave the cold. I have enough ease to wear a warm sweater underneath. You close me with one button at hip level, with an option to add another button a few inches above. I have tailored two-piece sleeves and welt pockets and am fully lined.
