The Walnut Duffle Coat suitable for experienced beginner / intermediate sewers.
For a fully lined coat, we recommend a medium weight woven outer-fabric such as melton, boiled wool, waxed canvas or waterproof coat fabric. For the lining you’ll need cotton, cotton lawn, acetate, polyester or pre-quilted lining.
If you would prefer not to line the coat, we recommend a medium to heavy weight woven fabric such as duffle, melton or boiled wool.
You will also need 2m of cotton or polyester cord (diameter to fit holes of toggles), 3 x 30mm 2 hole wooden or plastic coat toggles, thread to match the main coat fabric and cording, and a hand sewing needle. For the un-lined version, you’ll also need 2m x 20mm wide double fold bias binding, for securing the seams inside.
The Walnut Duffle Coat is designed for toddlers and children from 18 months to 6 years. 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 the child’s measurements.
If you bought this pattern before the 8th December 2020, an errata is available for this pattern for steps 26-27.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a instantly downloadable pattern that you print yourself, either at home or at a professional printers. At the end of the checkout process, you will receive an email with the link to your pattern and instructions. You have the option of printing the tiled version (A4 and US letter sizes) which is designed for home printers, or if you prefer not to have to cut and stick the pattern together, you can send the A0 file to a printer or copyshop to be printed in large scale. When printing, always make sure the scale is set to 100%. (You might have to uncheck the scale box.) For the tiled versions, we recommend you initially print the first page only to test the scale.
