I think using the quilted matress cover is a great idea, not foolish at all. I am one that is all for making a "first draft" out of repurposed material or just material you thought you liked, but either changed your mind on or decided against making.
It'll be a very "green" coat.

I found a couple patterns that I am going to pull a Frankenstein on...
The collar and sleeves of 3562 D (middle pic), front of 4403A (bottom right pic) and back of 3562 A/B (not seen, it's princess with a button tab across the lower back). I am not sure on the length - I only know it will cover my butt (so I don't get a chilled tooshy when I sit this winter  Grin)
Can't decide on side button tabs (4403A) - I am a larger size & not sure if they will just accentuate my non-waist).

Pattern 4403


Pattern 3562

tiltcreations:  That sounds like an interesting challenge.  Should be a neat frankencoat

Frankencoat - I like that!
Now I just need to find material that is good enough, but cheap enough in case it doesn't turn out so hot.
Hopefully by the end of next week. My 'plan' is to at least get the pattern cut by the end of the weekend.

I've gotten the pattern cut out now... hopefully I'll get the fabric cutting soon.

I have the main seams sewn on mine now (it looks like a coat). I still need to do the zipper and attach the hood (and hems), but I have to await a decision by DD on whether she wants the zipper to go all the way down to the bottom, all the way up to the top, or both, in which case, I need to buy a new zipper.  Roll Eyes

Hurray for my first ever post!  Smiley Anyway, I'd like to participate, but I'm not really comfortable working without a pattern or tute yet.  Does anyone have suggestions on where to look? I'd like to keep it pretty simple.  Thanks!

I'm still disassembling my garments for reassembly, but I did actually sew a few seams to reshape the shirt to fit me better.  Now trying to decide on what the sleeves should look like...
