THE SEPTEMBER • Pattern
By Merchant & Mills, The September is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: Overcoat meets duster. An oversized coat for striding through town and country with purpose.
Choose to make either lined or unlined. The September works for a variety of seasons, in oilskin or wool it can be a proper winter coat, or in linen it feels like a casual throw on.
Sizing: This is a multi-size paper pattern including sizes 6-18 or 18-28. Sizing, finished garment measurements and fabric requirements can be found here.
A note on sizing: The September has an oversized fit, always consult the finished measurements table to see how much ease you’d like in your coat. For example, Elwen in the video is wearing a size 10 but could wear 8-14 depending on the fit she wanted.
Fabric Suggestions: Dry oilskin, oilskin, mid–heavyweight linens, 7–12oz denim, wool corduroy, cotton twill, or canvas. A heavier weight cloth will result in a more structured coat. For the lining, we’d suggest using Barrier Lining if you are using oilskin. You could also use cotton voile, lightweight linen, cotton poplin, hemp/cotton, lightweight wools or a traditional slip lining.
