Pattern Testing - THE Coat

The PDF sewing world has been all a buzz about this coat and I was lucky enough to test it.


It is Amelie's Pleated Ruffle Jacket by Amelie and Henri.  It is scheduled to be realeased on August 31st but they are currently taking pre orders.


The pattern goes all they way from 3 months to women's XL!  The pattern has the option of long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve like the one I made, and the adult version has an option for a full or slimmer skirt.  I may be making one of these for me for the fall!


For my coat, I used cotton fabrics.  The outer is from Riley Blake's Indie Chic line and the sash and lining is country cotton from JoAnn's.  I love that big bow on the sash, but man it is hard to tie a bow in the from on my one year old!  But it looks cute tied in the back too,  then I don't have to work around her little helping hands while I tie.



It even looks cute without the sash all together.  It closes with a little button and loop on the side.



The pattern is well written and easy to follow.  There are no zippers or button holes so I think even a beginner with just a bit of sewing under their belt could tackle this one.  The hardest part is gathering all that fabric for the skirt, there is a lot of fabric there!
