Ottobre 04-2009-27 FINISHED





Pattern Description:


Classic Trenchcoat - in cotton - also recommended using wool

Pattern Sizing:

104-134

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Yes - apart from I used waterproof fabric and used less buttons

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Reasonable for Ottobre - apart from the sleeve lining. I followed the sew stylish info.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Lovely finished garment

Fabric Used:

A waterproof cotton with a cotton lining

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Did not use all the buttons or topstitching as I was using a waterproof fabric.



Hated using seam-sealing tape on the seams, did not like not being able to press seams etc due the fabric I was using. Would use a more slippery lining fabric for sleeves at least next time to aid removal of coat.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes - am now planning to make it up in wool, with nice lining.

Conclusion:



Really pleased with the finished coat, but it took me ages to make as I hated the fabric so much! Can't wait to make it up in a nice wool (which is in the stash waiting...)
