Make Your Own Pietra Trousers

Our latest Sew-Along features the Copenhagen Coat by Alice & Co Patterns.The Copenhagen Coat is an un-lined, knee-length easy-fit coat perfect for Spring/Autumn. The coat is designed with roomy patch pockets, one statement button and a pinked edge. Great for a first coat project, or if you need a stylish new look for the weekend.

A generous fit, with room to wear over a sweater.   

The pattern is designed to be knee-length but it would work just as well as a 3/4 length jacket, mid-calf coat or floor-sweeper!

A coat might seem like a big project but in fact coat-weight fabrics are surprisingly easy to work with and because there is a generous ease they are not difficult to fit. Have a go!

Please download the free version via this link
