    Oh, this is so pretty! It’s a bit too large for me so I really hope that enough people will by it out, I’d love to make this pattern 🙂

    Oh my – I bow down and worship at the fantabulous talented lady you are! This coat is divine! I haven’t tested my tailoring skills yet, but this may very well tempt me! Thank you for sharing this with us, it is generous.

    It’s a glorious coat! So much beautiful detail and exquisite tailoring! Alas, I live in Arizona, and would only be able to wear something like that perhaps 3 or 4 days a year. : (

    I have always thought this coat was absolutely stunning, and I think once I finish the coat tailoring project I’m currently working on I may have to pick up this pattern from you.

    I have been wondering if I could make it into a wintercoat (I have been searching for the perfect one, and now I have nearly finished my first coat, it is for the autumn and spring weather). To make it a wintercoat, I would use a cashmere-wool-cotton blend, which, of course, has some volume to it. I wonder if it is possible to do so

      ah, I have just wound the instructions, that answers my question, so medium fabrics at most


      • VeraVenus

        yes, medium fabrics and interlining the lining… that will make it warmer too but still not the coat for truly frigid winters.

    Please please please do this in tiled PDF for a printer 🙂 I personally have had 60 page PDF prints for a Siren suit and a 30’s coat and whilst they take longer and require accuracy, I find they are worth it. However, with the cost of the PDF AND the cost of professional printing, it’s not currently a pattern I would find viable. Thanks

      Hi Karen, I have now set it up for tiling 🙂 But I’m sorry you feel the price is too high…. £14 doesn’t even cover one hour of my time as a professional pattern cutter and this project took me two solid weeks of pattern proofing, correcting and writing instructions!

    I just loved this coat. Thanx for the pattern

    The coat is really beautiful! I hope you will offer the pattern in smaller sizes. If I understand correctly the pdf is for a large pattern sheet/ needs to be printed in a copy shop? Which format is it exactly? I would like to ask in the local copy shop about the prices for printing.

      Thank you Susanne, how much smaller would you need? I was planning on going down to a UK 8/US 4. The paper size required is E series ( US or Canada) The actual dimensions of the pdfs are on the coat page I linked to above.

    I absolutely LOVE this coat! The pleats are amazing. I wish the pattern was a bit bigger to fit me!

    This coat is amazing! I’m eagerly awaiting the larger sizes (I’m sure it will be a hit).
