Avid Seamstress – The Coat

£17.00

THE COAT

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).
