THE COAT • Pattern
By The Avid Seamstress, The Coat is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: Inspired by classic tailoring, we‘ve created a coat pattern that not only looks fabulous but also is an easy, enjoyable make – without the time-consuming tailoring. With a slim, chic silhouette, The Coat offers a modern twist on the woman‘s winter coat.
Flattering princess seams feature a clever in-seam pocket, while the modern drop sleeves make for a relaxed yet stylish look.
The Coat sewing pattern is incredibly versatile, working well in a range of fabrics from mid-to-heavy weight coating material to lighter woven fabrics – great for an alternative spring trench-coat.
The three quarter length hem is perfect over dresses or trousers, offering both elegance and warmth on a chilly day.
Other features include a notched collar, 2 button front closure, kick pleat and buggy lining (fully faced).
Fabric Suggestions: Medium to heavy weight wool, wool blends, linens, boucle, melton.
Trims required: Matching thread, interfacing, 2 x 2-2.5cm buttons, bias binding 3 metres (20mm) and lining.
Skill Level: Intermediate skill level.
Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
Beautifully packaged printed patterns include an instruction booklet and one or more pattern sheets, depending on the size of the product.
