Fantastic! Very clear and easy to follow, even for a person like myself who hasn't sewed from a pattern in 10+ years.

I made this for the priest for my handfasting ceremony, it looked amazing. The hood is so huge, it's perfect! Thanks a lot.

Very easy to sew. A few instructions could be a bit clearer in terms of measuring from specific points, but Queen of Spandex responded to clarify within the day. I would also recommend that a smaller seam allowance could be used for those already very comfortable with a sewing machine. In the end I used the pattern as is, with lining, only dropping and shortening the arm holes by a few inches. Would (and have) recommend. Praise be.

Great pattern information, though sewing instructions a bit confusing at times. However I would class myself more as a beginner then intermediate. Absolutely love the coat/cape. Thanks
