Unlined Raw-edged Coat pattern review
@sew_darn_lovely, UK

I found this lovely ‘Coatigan’ pattern from The Makers Atelier (The Unlined Raw Edge Coat) and decided it would be the perfect transitional piece for right now.  I chose a boiled wool in Camel, with matching thread and buttons from Minerva and set to work…

This pattern is a joy, and like when working with scuba fabric (which incidentally you can also use for this make), the fact that the fabric is non-fraying means this pattern works up super-quickly.  Added to that, the fact that there is no overlocking required due to the raw-edge finish of the garment and [cutting aside] this took me a grand total of 1.5hrs to sew and wear.

The cutting took me longer than anticipated as I was very careful to ensure it was extremely neat.  However, once I started sewing I realised the pattern allowed for a 1cm seam allowance which you then trimmed back to 2mm, so I needn’t have worried about that at all…. Always next time...

The pattern itself is loose fitting and dropped shouldered and I potentially could have sized-down.  The sleeves are also very long, but I genuinely love the relaxed fit and the ability to turn up the sleeves only adds to the relaxed vibe of the piece.  I hope that the camel colour will keep it timeless too!

The wool I used states ‘heavy weight’ on the Minerva website, but I personally found it more mid-weight, particularly as the coat is unlined.  It cuts and works up easily and the thread and buttons match perfectly.

So autumn - bring it on - I'M READY FOR YOU!!!
