Sasha’s Robson Coat

Another Robson Coat from pattern testing to share today! Sasha used a cotton-nylon blend like my sample, I could almost tell just from the photos because it has that same natural texture. (That and she mentioned it in her feedback and blog post.)


I quite like this blue colour, it’s not an in-your-face kind of blue at all and it would go with so many outfits! A great alternative to traditional khaki or black. Sasha, I can’t see your eyes but I imagine it would be an amazing colour on blue-eyed women!

My favourite part of her blog post is when she says it makes her feel like a spy! Check out her blog post here for project notes and more photos. Thanks, Sasha!

    I like the colour too. It really is a neutral and it could be spiced up with a dramatic scarf. Really, I love the pattern and the cotton-nylon fabric in pale blue is really nice.

    Pretty color. Is there a reason that the flaps on the front scrunch up? Can they be made smaller so they lie flat?

    Looks like very nice work–especially the topstitching.

      Of course! It’s really easy to change the shape of the flaps as they’re separate pieces from the rest of the coat. If you make a muslin you can adjust and re-adjust the shape of the flap until you’re happy with the look. If you don’t make the muslin and go straight to sewing the real coat, you can sew bigger seams to make the flap smaller. (And if you go too far, you can always re-cut new flap pieces if you’ve cut off too much!)

    I just got my pattern (plus 2 others) in the post the other day..little hand claps of excitement.

    I can’t wait to make the Robson up and the Cordova and the Minoru… You have made it too too too hard.
