Or is it a dress? I don't have the pattern and even if I had it it's far above my skill level. But I loove it.

How fascinating that a size sixteen equates to a size 2 in ready to wear nowadays.

That is a very sharp looking garment!

It is NOT above your skill level.

I didn't know you had a ceiling to your skill level. I can't see why you wouldn't do your usual fantastic job on this.

I think you could so totally do this dress/coat! It's really a wrap dress with a wide lapel and no collar. Mock it up in muslin, I double dog dare you!

You can do this, it is not above your skill level! Trust yourself!

Coats needs a lot of men's tailoring techniques which I haven't tried yet.

tailoring really isn't difficult, just time consuming. " Classic Tailoring techniques" is an excellent book to guide you through the steps...and I can help too.

I still think you could handle this.

Looks like it's got set-in sleeves, an A-line skirt, a couple darts and a covered belt. I don't think that's anything I haven't seen you put into other projects. It's got a distinctive front/collar arrangments, but I don't think it would be that difficult.

It's the man's tailoring techniques required for a good coat, pad stitching and stuff, that I haven't done yet.
