A Robson Coat with Underlining!

The Robson Coat pattern might be unlined, but Melissa’s Robson Coat is underlined! I had to share this on the blog. Look at her amazing colour combination! That is a fantastic print to have on the inside of your coat, don’t you think?

Here’s the link to her blog post, detailing the construction and her tips for sewing this coat in thicker fabric. She was one of the pattern testers for this pattern, which means she was able to whip this coat up, underlining and all, in less than two weeks. Impressive!

Want to see more versions of the Robson Coat? (Get the pattern here.) Thank you Melissa and well done!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

    Very clever!! I’ve been thinking and thinking about lining the Robson

    I am making tracks in getting all the fabric and bits and bobs for this trench coat as it’s going to be my new-born-baby-but-still-sewing make! hahaha

    I love it so much and it will give me inspiration to lose the baby weight for Winter :D

    Until then, I am trying to make nice (ish) Maternity Makes!!

    I really like your colour combination and the fact you pushed the boundaries with this pattern. I know what you mean by the bone chilling wind in Welly, we get that too in Christchurch. I am keen to try that pattern too but maybe for spring!

    Having seen Melissa’s coat in the …. ‘cloth’, I can confirm it is every bit as gorgeous as it looks in the photos. Very snuggly too :-)

    Melissa’s coat is fabulous – can’t wait to see it in person. Interlining the Robson is very popular (from what I’ve read on other blogs) and definitely I have plans to do this to mine, but Tasia I wonder if you would consider making suggestions on how to create a lining for the Robson and posting to your blog? I think there are many of us who are also interested in making a fully lined version.

      Hi Sandra! I have seen this question come up once or twice so there is definitely interest in making a lined version. I know I won’t have time to do a proper tutorial but here’s a link that might help you get started:
      http://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/2010/10/sewaholic-tutorial-drafting-jacket.html – a tutorial I did on Tilly’s blog on making a lining pattern for a jacket when there isn’t one, it’s quite scrappy but it gives you all of the info I would give in a Robson lining tutorial, except it’s already done.
      Hope this helps!

    That looks like quite an investment of time and patience–I’m so glad it really paid-off for you!

    Those colors go so well together! Really a fantastic job.

    A wonderful example of how homemade can look better than anything you’d buy in a store. It’s awesome!

    I love the colour combo of Melissa’s Robson! It looks elegant yet very original once open. I’ll keep that idea in mind…
