IAM Patterns, Merlin Coat pattern

$20.00

om the IAM Magic collection. I am Irma, a dress and I can also be made as a shirt. I have a concealed button placket, my front is shorter than my back and on the back I have a back yoke with a large box pleat. I have a shirt collar and you can choose between classic shirt sleeves or cuffed bishop sleeves.

Level: Intermediate

The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper or Swedish tracing paper.
