Dahlia Coat PDF Sewing Pattern



Stylish, contemporary and practical, the Dahlia Coat is a simple belted coat with easy-fit dropped shoulder sleeves, optional (gigantic!) single welt pockets at the front. Full length sleeves can be kept long or turned up to reveal the lining if you prefer, whilst the coat hem hits the body just below the hip.

The front band is curved and hugs the neck to keep you cosy. The belt, which is held in place with belt loops, keeps the draughts out, and press studs keep the coat closed. The coat is fully lined for extra warmth.

Designed to be sewn in lovely sumptuous wools, Dahlia’ll keep you warm and snug throughout the cooler months. A little oversized in design, there is plenty of room for a nice thick jumper underneath too!

Sewing Level
The Dahlia Coat is an intermediate to advanced level pattern. Most of the construction is not too tricky, but if you choose to make the welt pockets and you’ve never made them before, we recommend taking this stage slowly and paying close attention to the instructions.

Fabric Suggestions
We recommend medium to heavy weight non-stretch fabrics such as melton wool, boiled wool, coatings, and boucle. For inspiration and to find the perfect fabric, have a look at our specially curated suggestions.

Dahlia 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.

Fabric Requirements
The Dahlia Coat is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on 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 2 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
