Reviews

The Utility Coat sewing Pattern review
The Utility Coat - Ruth, London, UK

Pattern: The Utility Coat by TheMaker’s Atelier.

Fabrics: Water proof cotton fabric from The Cloth house warehouse & quilted lining.

Notions: Epic [polyfil] thread.

Pattern description: A relaxed, unlined coat with hood or round-necked collar.

Pattern Sizing: I made the size 12.

Did it look like the photo/line drawing on the pattern once finished?: Yes, although a little fuller because of the quilted lining.

What did you like or dislike about the pattern?: I love the simple clean lines of the pattern.

Did I make any pattern alterations or design changes?: Yes, I fully lined the coat, so didn’t bind any of the seams. I also used eyelets on the hood, as well as the waist, simple patch pockets, poppers instead of buttons and made a parker shape at the back. There is a very simple ‘how to‘ on The Maker’s Ateliers website, I used a parker of my daughter’s as a basic shape.

Would I sew it again or recommend to others?: Yes, a very well written pattern and if making the basic unlined version it is a quickish make.

Conclusion: delighted with my new winter raincoat and had some really lovely comments about it when I took it away for the weekend.
