Can you imagine that this Lagan coat was finished last February???
It’s been so difficult not to mention it, but now, since the pattern is available i can tell you won’t be disappointed.
It’s just perfect in any color.
The Lagan coat pattern
Designed by my favorite designer, Kennis Wong from Itch to Stitch, this coat is amazingly drafted.
It’s not for the faint at heart though. You will need time ahead of you to cut the pieces, sew a muslin, make all of the alterations for your unique body shape, etc.
But it’s such a rewarding project once finished.
The waist is lightly cinched, there are shoulder pads, all of the princess darts help shape the whole coat, there are pockets. What can I say more apart from I LOVE MY LAGAN COAT?
My Lagan coat
I cut a muslin in size 8 (top) blended to 10 at the hips.
I had to lower the bust apex 2.5 cm and shorten the shoulder seam (- 1 cm).
I bought this awesome 100% wool fabric in a bright color. The lining is some Bemberg.
The huge buttons (22 mm) are made from recycled materials and were just the teal shade I wanted.
I enjoyed topstitching all of the seams. It will take time, oh trust me, but so worthy. It gives structure to the coat.
This is one expensive project fabric-wise, but you will be so happy once it’s done and be able to parade in your handmade coat.
Fabrics: “Benedict” 100% wool and Bemberg lining
