Anybody have any idea where I might find a like pattern for her coat? Meadowlands is a new show on Showtime movie channel. Zoe is one of the daughters from the main family the show is based on. She was wearing a pink checked coat, reminded me of a swing coat but had buttons from the neck to bust line (that I could see-or my memory tells me) then the coat flowed out with a lot of fabric, that if she twirled it would come up. Any help is so appreciated.

I haven't seen the coat but there are many swing coat patterns in the pattern catalogs right now perhaps you can find it. I'm having trouble finding the check and houndstooth fabrics I am looking for to make them though. There is a purple and pink houndstooth at Denver Fabrics but I can't find the large houndstooth. I hope that fabric comes with the fall suitings.

Never heard of the TV show. Nancy Zieman wrote a book about Swing Jackets and has patterns on her website www.nancysnotions.com. Hope this will help you find what you are looking to buy.
