About Merlin

The I AM Patterns' Merlin is a lapel coat, designed so you can brave the cold. It has enough ease to wear a warm sweater underneath.  You can close it with one button at hip level, with an option to add another button a few inches above. The Merlin has tailored two-piece sleeves, welt pockets and it’s fully lined.

In an effort to reduce paper usage some pattern pieces overlap with each other, so you will need to trace the pattern on paper or using Cloth Edit’s Vilene Light.  It is fantastic for tracing patterns, and you can even sew it, which makes it great for fitting.  (Note - the overlapping is neither extensive nor hard to discern).
The packaging for I AM Patterns is beautiful but tricky to get into without ripping the lovely gold card that backs the pattern.  Our suggestion is to jiggle the pattern down as far as it goes, and neatly cut off the top of the pattern. You will need to snip off approximately 1.75cm, but take care to steer clear of the pattern itself.

I AM Patterns (paper patterns) are only available in sizes 36-46

 

The Fabric

For your Merlin, select wool coating such as boiled wool, wool gabardine, melton, or boucle.  Choose a medium to heavyweight fabric with some body to keep the structure of the coat.
