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.


It Costs How Much?

There has been an Issey Miyake skirt pattern that I've been searching for years now. And this evening I actually came across it ...
