Coat Sew Along

I joined The Great Coat Sew Along that was started by Marji.

I will attempt 3 coats. I’m a southern girl who now lives in Saint Louis. I’ve experience 2 winters here and when I tell you it gets cold… please believe me it gets COLD!
I’ve managed with a little puff jacket but I would like some variety for this coming fall/winter season.

So here are my choices….

I will attempt view A (in red)

Just looking at this pattern I already know the sleeves will have to be lenghtened, however I think it will work on those not so frigid days.


And finally… I will be trying my hand at this coat again. I attempted last year and it was a huge interface disaster!!
