    ‘Vogue 8346 has become my ‘go to’ pattern as it lends itself to different garments. I have made it as a dressing gown, coat dress and as an actual coat. This review is for the coat. The pattern really does live up to the easy rating and I sewed size 18 from some cheap wool/poly blend that I found in a Walthamstow fabric shop at £5 per metre. The lining is a gorgeous copper coloured faux suede from Woolcrest Textiles in Hackney at £2.50, and the collar is a wool waffle that I bought from the M Rosenberg stand at a Knitting & Stitching show (Ally Pally). I also slightly altered the pattern by adding a half belt trimmed with lace. The coat took me nearly two months to make as I am very slow and tend to stop when I hit a problem, but fortunately I have a sewing teacher to help me out. On reflection, the fabric choice was too soft and without the benefit of tailoring, it is not sufficiently robust. I also think that I could have gone down a size and generally paid more attention to the little details – I am not entirely happy with the improvised half belt at the back and belatedly realised that I didn’t need to sew it into the seams, doh. I was a little disappointed when I finally finished it, but people have said kind things. I am gearing for a new winter coat, which will be tailored, and at this stage I am considering boiled wool. Woolcrest Textiles, here I come.’

    I made this as a gift for my sister so I only had one fitting and otherwise made as standard sized as per the instructions.This pattern I would say is more of an advanced beginner to intermediate level pattern. The pieces and instructions were simple to follow, I made mine in a wool type fabric (about £4 a meter in a sale!) and a simple polyester lining fabric, due to pattern design I was left with no lumpy edges or raised seems.
    Pros : Easy to sew, no tricky piecing, instructions nice and clear, generous sizings for busty ladies (no FBA needed despite wearer, ie my sister, being an E cup) , has a great swish factor that makes you want to spin around to enjoy the movement!
    Cons: seam pockets not very sturdy for a coat and left very little room for a strong hem, sleeves are a plain one piece with no shaping or interesting cuff details, the pattern calls for press stud fastenings with buttons only for finish which looked very home made, very generous ease (the wearer matched the exact measurements for the size made, but with all the ease the pattern calls for I would have made a size smaller for a better fitted look)
    Hacks : I used nice welt seams for appearance and a stronger finish, I left out the press studs and instead reinforced the front and made proper button holes and made slight adjustments to the placing of the buttons for aesthetics (and to accommodate my sisters rather bling choice of buttons), the sleeves finished just above wrist length so I lengthened these as I prefer longer sleeves on my coats so added around 2.5 inches in lenth
