Sewing, embroidery and accessories

Pattern cutting and sewing a soft, unlined or reversible coat with Allison Rodger

Ref: 4D7180




Construct your own softly tailored coat based on your own measurements. A classic round neck style will be the basis, which you can individualise with sleeve and hem length. Personalise your coat with simple pockets or the trim of your choice, and capture an elegant, understated style. You will leave with a made-to-measure pattern and a well-tailored coat.


Allison Rodger

Allison Rodger trained in Fashion Design at Harrow School of Art, and gained experience in couture clothing working for London's top designers. From 1987, she became renowned for her bridal designs, but her love of British wools, tweeds and colour inspired Allison to learn tailoring techniques and skills, for which she is now highly regarded. Allison teaches fashion design students pattern making and clothing production, and is very impressed with the tailored garments produced by her short course students at West Dean College.
