Grab A Vintage Coat Sewing Pattern - It's Gonna Get Cold Outside!

It's hard to think about warm coats when we have had a record breaking summer. However, in order to get the coats sewn before it gets cold, you need to sew them when it's hot.

Let's start with the Ladies.

This long 1930s coat in two versions, everyday or fur trimmed for evening is available from Mrs. Depew Vintage The Everyday Version is Double Breasted with button and belt closure. The evening version forgoes the buttons and just uses the belt. Both versions have such beautiful long sleek lines! A flattering look for almost anyone. Mrs. Depew 74303 is available as an Instant Download!!

Revival Designed offers this 1932 unlined coat pattern, #6978, as a PDF download or as a Printed Pattern.

This coat has a flattering empire style waist and tucks to shape the bust area. It is the perfect thing for a sunny day when you need a bit more warmth.

Just for fun, there are two sleeve options - an elbow-length and a flared, long bell sleeve.

The long sleeve version (left illustration), laps across the front and fastens with a button at the waist. Interior ties help keep everything tidy. An extra long scarf is stitched to the center back for a bit of flare. The elbow sleeve version has an open front - all the better to show off your lovely dress beneath.

Although this is technically not a coat, it is a jacket that goes beautifully over the dress that is included in the pattern. The Jacket, with a shawl collar, below the elbow length cuffed sleeves, and a fitted waist forming a peplum hem.

Visit Kinseysue on Etsy to purchase this versatile set of coats. The coats, all with shawl collars, can be made in below the knee length, thigh length, or hip length. Dress it up for evening or down for daytime errands.
