The Avid Seamstress – The Coat
The Coat Sewing Pattern by The Avid Seamstress
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).
Pattern Sizes UK 6–UK 22
The measurements below are based on plain fabric or fabric with a print that doesn’t require pattern matching. Should your fabric require pattern matching please allow for more fabric. Additional materials needed are based upon the following allowances: 1) the coat back lining is made from standard lining fabric. Should you wish to self-face the coat back with your coating fabric, purchase an extra half metre. 2) The allocated bias binding is for the front facing and back lining to be bound. If you wish to bind more panels please purchase extra binding.
