I'll begin by first gathering my cheerleaders - you know who you are out there, and I want to thank you in advance for your support! I've become quite an avid coat pattern collector, so I'm trying to choose the 2016 COAT PATTERN OF THE YEAR. I'm envisioning something slightly boxy, a bit oversized, mid-calf or knee length, collar of some type, with pockets of course - some refer to this style as the BOYFRIEND COAT.
Here are the contenders...

I'm leaning heavily towards Vogue 9133 because it's a lot like ones I've seen in stores.
I'm pretty sure I have all the supplies I'll need in the coat making arsenal already: muslin, fusible interfacing, horse hair interfacing (if needed), various cotton fabrics for stays, twill tape, tailoring/coat making reference books, thread, buttons, FASHION FABRIC (which we'll talk about next time), I'm not sure if I have an adequate lining material though. Did I leave anything out???
