I actually had to go back and get more fabric because I bought too little the first time. The worst part of this pattern (aside from the buttons) is figuring out how much you need, if I do it again I will always get more than I need.
I don't remember exactly how much I got but I tried to lay it out this way for you, hope it helps. Feel free to double check it as well
I did the short coat with front c,d (1 7/8 yd), long sleeves (1 yd), & Collar (3/4 yd)
For the lining for coat (1 3/8 yd), sleeve (1 yd)
For interfacing for coat (4 3/4 yds), collar (3/4 yard)
(I am from Canada & am used to meters, this is hard XD)
I totally hit "THIS ROCKS" because it does! I think it is the most awesomest thing too that you consider yourself a beginner and attacked this project like a piranha on a hot dog!
A COMPLETELY inspiring thread!! Thanks chick for being a brave new sew-er! You win the "coolness award" for the day!
BIG HUGS *but watchout I might try to shoplift that jacket with YOU in it!*
D'aw thanks so much! I figured at some point I needed to branch out and try something that scared the crap out of me, and this was it
