So I had been eyeing the Meghan Markle coat. You know the one she had on when they announced the engagement . I guess everyone else’s was as obsessed with it too. Someone posted a similar coat pattern online McCalls 7480 claiming that it was her coat but it was not.
I should have known something was up when I didn't find a review for it. I always check Pattern Review before I use a pattern for the first time. I cut the medium. I should have cut the small as it is huge on me. I am the same size as my form. Even with cloths on its large.
I did not make a muslim which I should have done. I always cut a muslim when I am using a new pattern. I have some off white cashmere (like Meghan's) in my stash purchased while I was in NY, I am so glad I didn’t use it. The pattern that is closer to the coat is the one below. You have to do a little alterations to the collar but other than that its a total match.There are 2 pieces for the front and two pieces to the back which I believe will offer a better fit. You can put the pieces together I made this back in 2013.
