The Chloe Coat sewing pattern is designed for intermediate dressmakers and above. There are a couple of tailoring techniques involved, and you’ll be required to set in a sleeve and sew in a lining. Therefore we recommend you have completed a few other dressmaking projects to a good standard before tackling Chloe.
Sizing & Fabric Requirements
For the Chloe Coat we recommend a medium to heavyweight wool fabric, such as tweed, boucle, boiled wool or melton. For a lighter coat, you could also try a jacquard, linen or viscose linen blend. If you are new to sewing coats we recommend avoiding fabrics with a very loose weave (such as boucle) as these fray easily and can make your sewing more tricky.
Chloe is fully-lined, so you will also need lining fabric. We recommend using something with a silky finish so you can get the jacket on and off easily, such as satin, acetate, or even silk charmeuse for all-out luxury. Crepes and lustrous viscose will also work nicely.
For inspiration and to find the perfect fabric, have a look at our specially curated suggestions.
You will also need:
- 2x pieces of ice wool wadding (measuring 10cm x 23cm)
- 22″ open-ended zip for the zipped coat
- OR 5 or 6 2.1cm press studs if you’d prefer to close your coat with poppers
The Chloe Coat sewing pattern is available in sizes 8-20. See the size chart for details on measurements and fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home. Simply download, print, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
