Lovely slouchy oversized coat/jacket

A review of Merchant & Mills Sanda Coat or Jacket

Reviewed by Tina on 26th September, 2023


The Sanda can be made as a coat or jacket, lined or unlined.  Its currently available as a PDF, but will soon be available in paper format. As PDFs are my preference I printed out and assembled the pattern a couple of days after it was released, but you could always opt for copy-shop if that’s not your thing.  It has a great size range UK6-18 and UK18-28.


This is an oversized coat/jacket with a drop sleeve so no real fitting required.  My measurements are close to a size 10 and I sewed a size 10 with no modifications (I usually size down in M&M patterns but for this one I didn’t).



I love the versatility of this pattern and can see myself getting great use out of it.  The fact that you can sew it unlined or lined, short or long gives you so many options.  It can be sewn in many types of fabrics to give a different look.  Its a very straightforward sew and would be a great choice as a first coat to make.
