Classic Trenchcoat - in cotton - also recommended using wool
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
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.
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...)
