It’s reached that time of year when coats start to creep back into our wardrobes and we’re big advocates of making your own. It’s a great way to challenge your dressmaking skills and learn some new techniques as you sew. Plus you can make the coat of your dreams, something that’s often hard to find on the high street. Here are some of our favourite coat sewing patterns.
We just had to include our newest pattern first. The long-awaited coat from our workshop days is finally available in pattern form and it’s just so stylish we’ll be wearing ours day-in-day-out for the foreseeable. Inspired by the classic sixties silhouette, the 1960’s Coat
is a must-make for vintage-loving sewists. We love having the two different length options too – perfect for making a winter coat that fits in your wardrobe seamlessly.
This belted coat
is just the make if you want to feel wrapped up and warm as the temperatures drop. The contemporary design has easy-fit dropped shoulder sleeves that can be kept long or turned up to showcase the lining, adding extra character in a way that suits your style. The slightly oversized design is ideal for wearing a thick jumper underneath too for a shiver-free look!
Our Cocoon Coat
is a modern coat with a shaped collar stand, drop shoulder sleeve and a full lining. If you’re feeling technical, then you can add welt pockets too. It doesn’t fasten but wraps closed at the front and the versatile design means you can find a fabric that suits your fancy, whether you want a snug everyday coat or a head-turning statement look.
Cardigan meets coat in this cosy design. The unlined jacket is ideal for in-between weather and could be worn as outerwear or as a snug layer for keeping warm around the house. The Jessie Coatigan
is a quick make too, and the raw edges are finished with a wide facing to keep the seams hidden inside for a smart finish. We think it’s a must-make!
This classic coat is a true year-round staple. The details might be simple but it’s an exquisitely finished design that makes it suited for every occasion. You can choose to fasten the Chloe Coat
with either an open-ended zip or press studs and it’s tailored at the shoulders and fully-lined for a smart-yet-warm look. We’ll be wearing ours for as much of the year as we possibly can!
