Hello, I recently purchased the Parka Coat pattern. I printed the pattern using the at home printer method described in the instructions and pieced it together. The pattern is only for one side of the coat. Should I just use this one side for both a left and right front? So sorry if it is a silly question but I am used to sewing pattern and it is what I expected. Also, received instructions for a coat that is different from the pattern ordered. Are the instructions universal? Thank you!
I have a question. If I use a thin layer of viscose fibres as a lining for the inside of the jacket then two layers of wool and some decoration on the outside, does this count as four layers and give even shrinkage? I've used it before but with rayon fabric (patchwork style) on the outside of the garment.
I have the pattern ready to go! Can't wait to get started.
Hi Again Irena,
I just got back from Staples to have the pattern enlarged - The front/back enlarged perfectly to actual size.
The collar page, however, did not enlarge and I did not know the percentage % to have them enlarge those pieces.
Can you please tell me how much to enlarge that page? I would like to get started on my project but want to make sure I have the total pattern the correct size.
Thank you, Sue
