Long Winter Coat – DIY + Tips

For the very first time, April from coolripa patterns, cuts and stitches this lovely, cozy, long winter coat. Taking a pattern from an existing garment she feels is appropriate for her own sewing skills, she reproduces the coat with a super result.  A collar, facings, lining, pockets, and buttons.  April uses a  Juki HZL-G Series sewing machine.  April shares tons of good garment sewing tips in this video!
