Hi Readers!

When Deer & Doe announced that they were broadening their size range I was mildly enthused.  Enthusiastic for more sizes …. but …. the new patterns only go up to bust 45 5/8″ and the expanded sizes are only available in PDF format.  That’s better than their previous size range, but being a fan of paper patterns, it was a little irritating to have to purchase a PDF when I could have bought the pattern at one of my favorite fabric stores.  However, I just adore this trench coat with it’s princess seams and it’s cute skirt, so I was sold.
