    I had such a fun time sewing up this cute coat for my 7 year old. She wanted to be a spy for Halloween and I was glad to remember that Oliver+S had a pattern! I've sewed up quite a few O+S patterns over the years and this one is just what I'd expect - easy to follow, smart construction and beautiful results.
    I was very glad to have the size chart as when I measured my girl, it worked out to a 6. I made the smaller size (I would have normally just ploughed ahead and made a 7 or 8) and I was so glad I did, it fit perfectly.
    I especially appreciate that with the digital pattern, you don't have to print all the pieces and then puzzle it together. What is needed is very clear :)
    Now I really want to make another in a coated cotton for non-Halloween!!

    I sewed a Secret Agent Trench Coat as a Halloween costume for my 5 year old daughter. The coat looked beautiful when I was done - I was quite amazed that I was able to sew something that looked so professional. The pattern was so well written and easy to follow! I purchased the PDF version and had no trouble printing it and taping the pieces together.

    I'm not sure my 4-month old needs a trench coat, but now he has one! I made the smallest size for him for a Halloween costume - it sewed up quickly and easily, and it looks absolutely terrific. I could have gotten away with slightly less fabric for the 6-12 mo size, but appreciated having enough extra to make up for any potential mistakes. I'll be making this again for him when he's a little older as an actual jacket.
