Yuzu Raglan Coat from Waffle Patterns
Exciting news the Raglan coat from waffle patterns has
just been released!
Just got the news that Waffle Patterns has just released the Raglan Coat. I was asked to be a pattern tester for this pattern back in the spring and have had to wait ten months to share it with you.
This is a loose-fit raglan sleeve, double-breasted coat with a slightly shaped waist and rounded hemline. When I made it, there was just the option for a welt pocket but now there's also a patch pocket which will work better on thicker fabrics. It can be made in sizes 34-48 so there's a good ranges of sizes. I really enjoyed making this coat and realised that I hadn't actually made a winter coat before. I didn't make it easy for myself either, as I picked a plaid wool fabric albeit it in a lightweight.
Waffle Patterns are so well-written with excellent illustrations that take you through each stage of the make. With the thickness of my fabric choice, I did have trouble with automatic buttonholes on my sewing machine and had to do the buttonholes with narrow zigzag stitch by hand but they turned out surprisingly neat.
I love this coat pattern and think the collar looks as nice folded down and can't wait to wear it now the weather is changing. The Yuzu PDF sewing pattern costs €10.80 until 30th September from Waffle Patterns.
