    I loved making this coat, I started with the written instruction which are great but I loved loved the YouTube tutorial. I didn’t pick up the instructions after that. No need to wonder ‘how to’ the tutorial explains it all. I bought the standard pattern for the coat and found the make was bob on to the measurements. I had to make some adjustments to the sleeve as I am a little short but left the length as is as I wanted long. All in all it took me 15 hours to make.

    I loved making this coat! I would never have thought I had the ability, but having experienced how clear Donna’s tutorials are on the Vienne dress, I thought I’d give it a try. The construction process is broken down into easily achievable steps and anything tricky is shown and explained really clearly. Donna’s positivity shines through and it feels like sewing with a friend in the room 😁

    Nice pattern BUT no instructions, pictures etc.

      Hi Frances, I’ve just emailed you.

      I’m not sure why you haven’t got any instructions? There’s actually a booklet of over 20 pages. Did you download the pattern? Where did you purchase it.

      I’m sure we can sort it.

      Hi Frances,

      I had a chance to check this morning and I can see you ordered a paper copy of the Coat pattern, I can only apologise that in error you didn’t have any instructions. I’ve attached them in an email as a pdf and I will post a set out to you today.

      I hope you accept my apology.

    I’ve made this coat twice now. It’s a beauty! Straight forward to make if you follow the instructions step by step. Watch the video for the slightly tricky bits! When made it’s casual but chic I would say. The wow factor is all in the lining ……

      I’ve seen both Jo and they certainly have the wow factor!! Thanks so much fir the review xx

    I wanted to make a coat for a long time but kept putting it off as I thought it was too hard. So I got the Vienne coat pattern as I know Donna’s instructions and YouTube videos are great, and I’m so glad I did. It was actually really straightforward to make. There’s a lot of steps of course but they’re manageable.
    If you don’t think you can make a coat, this is the pattern for you!
    All the details of my coat are on my blog
