    Such a great coat! It’s a dream to wear and perfect for winter layering. My only issue was that the collar instructions were awkward and I think they could be assembled using better methods. Otherwise it’s all a dream to make, I didn’t need to make any alterations and the pockets are stunning. Love it!

    I’m a huge fan of this pattern – it makes for a chic and stylish coat without much fuss. The unique welt pocket shaping adds interest and the swing silhouette is very flattering. I made mine in a thick wool coating.

    The only alteration I had to make was to lengthen the sleeves, which is a standard alteration for me. The raglan sleeves mean there’s less fitting work to do around the shoulders – win! I cut a size down from my recommended size, because there is loads of ease in the pattern and I was a little nervous about feeling overwhelmed by too much fabric. I’m really happy with the sizing as a result.

    The instructions were great and the coat was actually very quick and easy to make. If you’re interested in how I interfaced (for structure) and interlined (for warmth), there’s a full review of the pattern with much more detail on my blog (www.michellesews.com).
