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).

Suggested Fabrics: range of fabrics from mid-to-heavy weight coating material to lighter woven fabrics + lining


  • Coordinating thread
  • Two 2cm or 2.5cm buttons
  • 3 metres of bias binding to bind the front facing and back lining
  • 1.8m iron-on interfacing (90cm wide)
  • Lining - The coat has a buggy lining at the back which is a short lining extending one third of the top of the garment. Purchase half a metre of lining for the buggy lining. The sleeves are unlined. Should you wish to line the sleeves, purchase a total of 1.2m for the buggy lining and the sleeves.
