Carrie's Not Reversible Coat
I constructed this coat using sueded cuddle cloth. I deconstructed McCall's pattern 9576 in such a way that I was able to construct the coat by primarily using topstitching on all the pieces - with the exception of the side and shoulder seams - to form the body of the coat. After topstitching, I cut the "seam allowances" close to each seam. This process all but eliminated shedding.
This pattern was designed to be a reversible coat – but alas, who needs reversible when this warm blanket-like fabric can be worn close to the body for added warmth!
