Robson Coat Sew Along on the Sew News Blog

Have you dreamed of sewing the Robson Coat, but felt it was too challenging of a project to tackle alone?

On the Sew News blog, their Sew Along for December is for our Robson Coat! It’s led by Rhonda Buss from Rhonda’s Creative Life, who will be taking you through the making of this coat.

The version in the above image is pretty spectacular, don’t you think? Talk about a statement piece! You can see the sewalong has already started, but so far there isn’t any sewing yet, just discussions on fabric and materials.

I thought I’d mention it, in case you hadn’t seen it and wanted to take part. Sewalong details are here, and the first post is here. Thanks so much, Rhonda and Sew News for choosing the Robson Trench Coat for your December feature!

    How cool! Rhonda is very talented! I am sure it will be a great sew-along. As I am making my way through my Minoru jacket I realize how useful step by step instructions are…they can make an ‘advanced’ project an ‘easy task’…So thanks for all the sew-alongs!

      I agree! The Minoru sewalong instructions really helped me.

      I am sure it will be great too! I agree, if you are a visual person it’s so helpful to see real-life photos of the sewing steps. I’m so glad to hear the Minoru Jacket tutorials are useful to you!

    I’ve just discovered this sewalong and will follow it to see if I am ready to try this pattern. I think it’s too much for me now, but it’s a lovely pattern so I will do it someday ^^

    Before I cut I want to confirm something. Patterns have two sizings, right. The one at top and at the bottom of the envelope are the “Finished Sizes” measurement.

    Well, according to the chart – the one on top I need to grade up for my Robson; but when I compare my measurements with the one on the bottom (finished garment measurement) I’m fine. ??

    Is it all about the ease? As in if I choose to cut the pattern out according to the largest size lines I will simply have less ease? Or, do I go by my body measurements, add the difference in inches to the numbers at the top of the envelope pattern back and add to the sides of the pattern pieces before I cut? There is a 5″ difference in my actual waist measurement – 39″ and what the pattern envelope says at the top. But looking at “finished” measurements I have 5″ extra at 44″. My hips are 46″ and the “finished garment” measurement says 56″ which indicates to me that I do NOT have to grade.

    Please help, Tasia.

    Thank you in advance.
