The Jessie Coatigan is an advanced beginner to intermediate level pattern. The construction for the most part is fairly simple, but we suggest you take the shawl collar step-by-step if you haven’t sewn one before.
We recommend medium to heavy weight woven or knit fabrics with a good drape, such as melton wool, boiled wool and boucle. We suggest avoiding “crisper” knits such as French terry, but knits with wool content work really well thanks to the added drape and weight.
The Jessie Coatigan is sized between UK sizes 8-20. It’s designed to be slightly oversized so that you can wear a thick jumper underneath if you wish, but if you’re not planning to wear it over bulky layers, you may want to size down. 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.
Both Lisa (size 8/10 in Sew Over It patterns) and Olivia (size 14 in Sew Over It patterns) wear the size 10.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, 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.
