Valley Check September Coat

I've had my eye on the September Coat since it was first released - I love the look of a longline coat/duster and as someone who feels the cold, it is also a wonderfully practical wardrobe item for me.

I was wanting a coat that was flexible to wear both inside and out, so I opted for the unlined version and used bias binding to finish the seams that may be visible as I leave it open as a duster style jacket.

I didn't make any adjustments or alterations to the pattern.   I did however alter the construction of the pockets slightly which I went into further details on my blog post!

Green September

As I was using Melton Wool for a winter coat I wanted it to be roomy and over-sized so went with the recommended size 14. I have tried on the 10 and 12 in the shop in Rye and if I was making a linen coat and wanted a neater fit  I would go with the smaller size.

The pattern came together really well...had a couple of head scratching moments but easily worked out. I left off the pocket flaps and in seam pockets on this version.  Lined it in vintage cotton.

I will definitely use this pattern again.  It's my ideal coat.

Dream pattern - September Coat

This coat reminded me of a Vogue Patterns Dior coat I made as a began university in the 70s, but with a straighter silhouette and lovely detailing on the pockets etc. I was very excited to make it, because there were fiddly details like top stitching that were very satisfying to get right, while the actual sewing up of the garment was pretty straight forward.

I am usually a 10 or 12 in Merchant & Mills patterns (12 in Evie trousers, 10 in 101, 10 in Box Box dress and 12 in Ottoline jacket). Since it said it was an oversized design I chose size 10 for a linen duster coat, but it’s still so roomy the next version I am making (in Harris Tweed) is a size 8. But I love the style, and it hangs nicely in linen. I excluded the side seam pockets, since the patch pockets seemed enough, and I always fear pockets in the side seams may ruin the clean line. I also slightly shortened the sleeves (Unusual for me. In some pattern brands I usually need to lengthen.) I made the unlined version, thinking I can add a lining later if it seems to need it, but as a light, trans-seasonal coat, I think it may be too heavy lined. I am definitely lining the Harris Tweed version though. That is running up nicely, and because it is in a houndstooth check it requires matching the lines of back and white to get it looking as professional as possible, but the lines are a great guide to making sure everything is correctly aligned. Because of the thickness of the material I am not even attempting two rows of top stitching  and sticking to one.

I so looked forward to this pattern being released, and like the Evie, Ottoline and Box Box, am sure I will make it several times in different fabrics.
