I am Merlin, a lapel coat to brave the cold. I have enough ease to wear a warm sweater underneath. You close me with one button at hip level with an option to add another button a few inches above. I have tailored two-piece sleeves, welt pockets and I am fully lined.
All seam allowances are included in the pattern.
The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.
The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. If you prefer a ready-to-cut pattern, try the pdf version as pieces do not overlap with each other.
Size 36 to 46. See sizing guide below.
Iron-on interfacing: 12’’ by 37’’ (30 cm by 95 cm)
1 button of 1’’ (2.5 cm) diameter
Optional: 1 extra button (1’’ (2,5 cm) diameter) to close the coat with 2 buttons
Wool coating: boiled wool, wool gabardine, melton, boucle… Choose a medium to heavyweight fabric with some body to keep the structure of the coat.
