Pattern was the perfect style for a Luna Lovegood tweed coat but there has to be a better way to do the buttonholes. Especially using a tweed fabric. The buttonhole attachment gets stuck on the collar and will only go half way up ... REALLY hard to remove a partial buttonhole from tweed! I've accomplished some but it's so stressful - think I will sew the buttons on my next one and use snaps, even though I like the look of real buttonholes. If anyone out there has tips it would be much appreciated! Otherwise the pattern is very easy to make ... would have given 5 stars except for the buttonhole issue.
I liked that this pattern had fewer steps than most. It would have made a nice, easy project, except that I decided to make it fully lined, so I had to "wing it" there. And my buttonhole attachment was acting up. I liked that there were clear markings for the buttons and buttonholes. . But I think next time I'll play it safe and use velcro.. I made this coat out of pinwale corduroy lining I used a silk-like synthetic shirting for the lining. I tried it on my 16" doll and it looks good on her. I haven't yet tried it on the 18" doll because its so perfect for the smaller one.
It is cute coat,however it was too short for my 18" American Doll so I added a bottom Gatherd flounce to it. It looked much better.
This pattern made up so cute! I used a dark teal fleece and added a beret in the same fabric. I used some vintage buttons I already had. I am very pleased with the pattern and instructions and would recommend it.
I made this of hot pink corduroy and black buttons and then black slacks .So cute and easy!
