Coat Finished

29 Sep

Gianna's Coat Is Finished!

Yeah!  She wore it to school today.

CHANGES I’D MAKE WHEN WORKING THIS PATTERN AGAIN:

1)  I think it needs to be 1″-2″ longer in the body.

2)  The pocket lining isn’t sewn down – I’d sew it down.  It bugs me.

3)  The undercollar needs to be trimmed 1/4″ so the seam and collar “tuck under” better.  I know to do that usually, but this pattern had two separate pieces – a collar and an undercollar.  So I assumed that the pattern companies had finally figured out that the undercollar needs to be slightly smaller.  Nope…

That’s all I’d change.  It was an easy-peasy pattern that should have been completed in a day (if it wasn’t for the whole buttonhole thing).  I ended up buying large snaps and sewing the buttons on the front and she’ll have to snap it shut.
