Abbey Coat

Here is my take on the Abbey Coat by Jamie Christina Patterns.

I made version A. The fabric is a wool blend from It was on sale and I initially bought it to make a muslin to check the fit. I was a little shocked about the intensity of the color when it first arrived, but it turned out to look awesome once it was finished. I made a size 8 and the fit is perfect. I can easily wear a sweater underneath with enough room to move. The only thing I changed was the length of the sleeves. Who the hell needs 3/4 sleeves on a winter coat??????

The buttons are from JoAnn Fabric.

By the way, I am also wearing my Thurlow Trousers. The fabric is from JoAnn Fabrics. A pinstripe suiting fabric with a very soft touch and wonderful drape.

I lined the coat with grey Ambiance Bemberg. I didn't interface the flounce. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow, with lots of pictures. It involved quite a bit of sewing by hand, but the outcome is totally worth it.

Great jacket! I have a question, did you lengthen the sleeves? If so did you have to make the cuffs more narrow?

Thank you, Joanne! I did lenghten the sleeves, but didn't change anything on the cuffs.
