I am Merlin, a lapel coat to brave the cold. I have enough ease to wear a warm sweater underneath. You close me with one button at hip level with an option to add another button a few inches above. I have tailored two-piece sleeves, welt pockets and I am fully lined.
I AM Patterns are designed to be traced off. The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. This means that you will be able to make multiple sizes of the garment and adjust the pattern as you trace it if necessary. For this you could use tracing paper, baking parchment, thin wrapping paper; or we can supply you with some spot and cross pattern paper.
The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.
Wool coating: boiled wool, wool gabardine, melton, boucle… Choose a medium to heavyweight fabric with some body to keep the structure of the coat.
