McCall's 2465 Coat Dress

This pattern is from a few years back and it is still one of my favourites.  It is from the now defunct McCall's NY Collection.  I really liked the designs that came out of the NY Collection, and you can find them on ebay every now and then.

McCall's 2465 is a pattern that includes a pair of pants and coat dress.

The fabric that I chose was a deep burgandy overlay with black faux topstitch design throughout.  I recall the fabric as one that frayed very easily but it turned out quite nicely.  Thank goodness for a serger!

The coat dress is lined.  I used a medium weight black lining.  The lining is actually heavier than the fabric that I chose for the coat dress and I'm happy with the result.


  1. Oooh, I remember the NY collection, it was so classy, of course, when I first saw it I was so young I thought hemming was classy. I need to track down all of them! I love your coat-it looks perfect for sauntering into a party......

    1. Thanks. I've never worn it to a party, it's the prairies. But it is one of my go-to piece for going to the opera or theatre. I miss NY collection, they came out with some great patterns.


McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
