Coats are sewn from warm fabric, lined. First you need to remove the pattern, then transfer it to the fabric. After that, cut out, then stitch the details. This work requires phasing and accuracy.
It is necessary

Think about what fabric to sew your coat from. If it is very dense, wouldn't that be a problem for the sewing machine? If the unit is used to taking not such heights, then buy the selected canvas.
It is important to decide what season the outerwear will be for. For spring and autumn, you need to buy a lining fabric. For winter, in addition to the above, you need to purchase insulation. The batting is heavy enough. To make the coat light and warm at the same time, get a synthetic winterizer.
The main fabric, lining fabric and insulation are created one pattern at a time. Usually maternity coats are made in the shape of a trapezoid. Then the expectant mother will be comfortable in such an outfit.
Attach tracing paper to the pattern of your choice and redraw it. Do not forget to mark where the grooves or folds will be (if any on the model). Redraw everything, even the smallest details, mark the locations of the pockets.
Fold the fabric in half with the wrong side out and pin: front, back, sleeves. These details are symmetrical. If the back is one piece, then do not make a seam in the middle. Shelf parts 2, they are cut out separately, like the sleeves. Add allowances for seams - 1-1.5 cm, and for hem and sleeves - 3 cm.
Cut the fabric along the outlined paths. Pin the pattern to the lining fabric and cut similar pieces out of it. Then, from insulation, if it is a winter coat for a pregnant woman. From the lining fabric, cut out the details of the cut pockets. If they are overhead, then from the main one.
Additionally, it is necessary to cut out a collar from the main fabric (2 symmetrical parts), lapels - left, right. Now you can start sewing. If you are an experienced seamstress, then immediately sew the seams on the machine, if not, then outline. Measure the product. Does it fit well? Then sew the side seams first, joining the front and back parts. Then, make a shoulder seam.
Take the sleeve detail, sew it down the middle. Arrange the second sleeve in the same way. Sew the top of the sleeve into the armhole. For a better fit, you can tuck it a little over your shoulders or sew on small shoulder pads.
Sew the lining details in the same way, and then the insulation. Turn the coat out of the base fabric over your face. Take a sewn insulation product. Slip its sleeves into the sleeves of the base. Also work with lining fabric. The seams must remain inside the coat. Insulation - between the main and lining fabric.
Hem the sleeves. Attach the chin to the middle parts of the front. Turn the coat inside out through the bottom, join the lining fabric with the hem with a seam.
If the model has a buttonhole bar, then sew it to the right side of the shelf. Sew the loops themselves on the sewing machine, and then carefully cut the fabric inside them.
Sew the 2 pieces of the collar together at the top and side. Take the PIN. Pin the middle of the collar to the middle of the back neckline. Sew the collar from the inside out, connecting it with one seam with the collar of the shelves, back and with hem. Turn the coat over your face.
Hem the bottom very last. If the fabric is thick, you can do it on your hands. Sew on the buttons and you can try on a new thing.
