I friend of mine is gong to a cougar mixer — she is in fact leading a group of more shy ladies. She would love a coat dress a la The Graduate. My friend has been through a lot in the last couple of years including losing 100lbs so I want to make her a really great dress... she also does a lot for the people in her life.

So I has anyone out there found a coat pattern that is similar or a dress pattern that is coatish and not too hard to make? She is a size 12 now.

Thanks

Ohmygosh, I have the PERFECT pattern for your friend! BurdaStyle's new "Paola" wrap-dress: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/3895

If you look at the photoshoot garment, it looks very coat-like: http://www.burdastyle.com/creations/show/17887

If it wasn't 4 bucks, I'd have downloaded it by now Tongue (boooooo, lack of credit card...).

You have to join BurdaStyle to download their patterns, and all they ever email you is the monthly newsletter.

What's a cougar mixer?  Is it a fundraiser for a zoo or something?

Uh..... a cougar is an older woman who likes to date younger men.

I like that dress. It looks very figure-flattering for a girl with some curves.
