For the very first time, April from coolripa patterns, cuts and stitches this lovely, cozy, long winter coat. Taking a pattern from an existing garment she feels is appropriate for her own sewing skills, she reproduces the coat with a super result. A collar, facings, lining, pockets, and buttons. April uses a Juki HZL-G Series sewing machine. April shares tons of good garment sewing tips in this video!
Sewing Materials Used:
- 4 yards of coat fabric – it really depends on your size and the length of your coat
- lining fabric
- sewing machine
- an existing coat/blazer/jacket that fits you, to trace your pattern, you can also use a pattern from the store, or drape a new design yourself. *See more about coat and jacket sewing in this helpful post right here at SWN.
