Sew the Ara Quilted Overcoat
Intermediate | 1 hour 37 min
Cozy up to this fresh take on the quilted coat. The Ara Quilted Overcoat is short-sleeved with double patch pockets and plenty of ease to fit over your favorite chunky sweaters in the winter or just a t-shirt in the spring. Fiber artist, quilter, and sewist Natalie Ebaugh starts this project with you from the beginning, from showing you how to select fabric and batting, to assembling quilt sandwiches and quilting your pattern pieces, to constructing a coat with a bias binding. There are minimal pattern pieces with Natalie's modern design, so you can spend even more time playing with different prints and quilting techniques - and making a whole collection of coats for all year round.
