September 21st, 2006 Missus Coat Built by Me!

I had been anticipating the canadian release of the new “Built by Wendy pattern line”:http://simplicity.com/index.cfm?page=section/wendy/wendy.html through Simplicity since I had first read about it online a year ago. While fabric shopping a few weeks ago I giddily flipped through the Simplicity pattern book looking for the Built By Wendy pattern section, and my heart nearly skipped a beat when I found the section. I immediately knew what my first Built By Wendy Project was going to be: the Misses Coat! I purchased pattern #4109, the fabric and notions and headed home to get to work.

After I had cut into the pattern I realized that I had accidentally bought a pattern smaller then what was suggested for my measurements. As I read more of the pattern directions I discovered that there is actually 6″ of ease on the coat which means that the garment has a fit that is an extra 6″ larger than your measurements. This happy mistake ended up being a coat that fits me just right with out being too large. I also took in the sleeves about 4″ because I didn’t want the hem too flared at the cuff:
