  1. A. Beck

    This pattern was a lot of fun to put together. I did make and tweak the muslin (I’m very short waisted), but after I read and trusted in the directions, I had no difficulties. This was my first garment made from a Reconstructing History pattern, but it will not be the last!

    Easy coat. Great for Pirates. The cuffs were a little weird and you have to fiddle with them and maybe do some hand stitching. The side seams at the turn don’t exactly match up but not bad and the pockets are in a horrible place so I raised them several inches. I made two and added revers on one of them. They are very handsome. not a bad pattern.

    This pattern was easy for a novice! Just one warning – the cuff pattern piece says cut 2, but you really need 4 pieces! The instructions say 4, but make sure you know that before you run out of fabric. 🙂
