New Sewaholic Robson Coat + Country Living Fair

by Susan on March 16, 2013

New Sewaholic pattern – the Robson Coat….

Tasia launched her newest pattern yesterday… the Robson Coat!

In Tasia’s words “Every woman needs a classic trench coat. Even better if it’s in a fabulous colour with shiny gold buttons!”

She continues “Rounded edges at the collar, flaps and pocket welts are feminine and retro-inspired, for a softer look and a contrast to the military look of a trench coat. Pockets are placed at the front seams so they don’t add any bulk to the hips. In fact, there are no side seams at all, for a very smooth silhouette! This project may seem intimidating, but I promise it’s easier than it seems. In fact, it’s a good project if you don’t have a lot of time to sew. There are many little pieces to construct – epaulettes, flaps, belt, sleeve tabs – perfect if you only have short bursts of time to sew! Then when you do have a stretch of quality sewing time, all the small pieces will be ready to go! The Robson Coat is unlined, so it’s faster to sew and easier to press the finished coat. The seams are finished with bias binding for a clean, professional finish. Choose matching bias tape or pick a bright, contrasting colour like this sample!”

The patterns have already shipped and are due to arrive very soon.  If you would like to reserve one – please e-mail me on
