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 Cheesy

We have the same taste, because I have this pattern bookmarked for when my local store has a sale on Simplicity patterns :]
It looks great. I would love to see some pictures of the lining too.

This coat is beautiful.

I actually bought that pattern to make a corduroy jacket. I just need to save up for the fabric!

Wonderful job!

I think I have that pattern... is it from the project runway series?

I never use patterns, but saw that one and snagged it... is it easy for someone that has no idea how to use a pattern??

I wouldn't call it easy, I usually go off the pictures myself but I really did have trouble with certain parts. If you have the pattern try taking a look at it and seeing if you can understand it. If not maybe try bringing the instructions with you to your local fabric store during the off time of the day and they might be able to help you do understand it.

I didn't mean easy like easy to make - I can sew pretty efficiently, but would you have been able to understand the pattern without having sewn with one before?
