What materials did you use? Upholstery Fabrics purchased about 5 years ago.

I have a bunch of upholstery fabric in the closet. did you follow the same instructions?

I just dug out my upholstery fabric to see if I had enough. How much fabric did you use for the main fabric? I might have 2 yards, so it may not be enough.

Sorry for the delay - I didn't see your question. The pattern is V8841 - view A. I made a size 16, and for that view it states 3.25 yards of 60" wide. I don't know if I used that much - I'm short. You could lay out the pieces and measure how much fabric you need - or you could use a pattern that uses less fabric - perhaps a short jacket or a vest? Upholstery fabric has weight and warmth.

This is wonderful! I love contrasting fabrics but I never would have thought to choose this print for a coat! It works so well!!!

Thank you. I had the fabric for a few years before I decided on this coat.
