Top 10 coat sewing patterns to make this Winter
When it’s getting chilly outside, we start to think about our Winter makes. If you haven’t tackling it yet, how about challenging you sewing skills and making a coat sewing pattern? Here is a list of our top ten coat dressmaking patterns. Get inspired with our collection of formal jackets, classic coats, duffle coats and anorak patterns, which are suitable for all sorts of wool and woven fabrics.
The Sapporo Coat from Papercut patternsis a beautiful coat for evenings out and would work well over dresses. The cocoon shape gives this coat a bold silhouette. It’s also fully lined and has hidden pockets in the front seams. Make with either a lighter-weight brocade or jacquard or wool for colder days. Have a read of some reviews below. A good beginner coat pattern.
The classic Oslo coat by Tessuti Fabricsis definitely one for luscious wools and tailoring fabrics. It’s modern cut with single button closure looks great with jeans and over chunk jumpers. It’s double breasted and features an oversized shawl collar. The raglan sleeves will be easy to sew in place and there are the all important side pockets. This would be a good pattern if you wanted to try and make your first coat.
The Quart coat by Pauline Alicehas a distinct traditional military feel and lots of design details. These include being fitted at the bust and waist, high stand-up collar, in-seam pockets and zipped down cuffs. The most striking detail is the pleated hem at both sides. This would certainly be a challenge to make so we’ve recommend it for an advanced sewist. Take a look at the review below.
Our love of French sewing pattern designs continues with the Riga coat from Orageuse Patterns. The small collar around the neck is superb. This coat is great for a range of different body shapes and you shouldn’t have any problems with the fit. It has deep patch pockets at the front and the waist can be clinched in with the tie belt. It is also lined. This pattern would look great in a boiled wool and would be just as cosy as a dressing gown! This coat would be ideal to make if you’ve already made a few garments.
The Cascade Duffle Coatis a classic casual jacket with nostalgic toggles providing the front closures. It also has a hidden zipper up the front so you don’t get chilly. It’s slightly A-line in shape and has big patch pockets on the front. A great coat to colour block the panels, you could also play around with prints. The collar and hood are interchangeable between the versions too. Read a review below:
The Ernest coat by Republique to Chiffonhas a cute Peter Pan collar and 1960s feel with it’s A-line shape. The pattern comes with the option to make it long or short and would be the perfect pairing for a shift dress. The welt pockets are a nice design detail and the back yoke box pleat gives you more room at the bodice. We would recommend this pattern for an intermediate sewer as the welt pockets can be a little tricky.
The Kelly Anorak by Close Case Files has been really popular. As with all Heather’s pattern, there is loads of help online to guide you through the process and help sourcing materials. Perfect if you enjoy the outdoors, this coat is super practical. It has lots of design features and there are two versions with the option to have a drawstring waist and hood. This wold certainly be a challenge but don’t be put off by that, check out these amazing reviews below.
The Silvia coatigan by Schnittchenhas probably the biggest pockets of all the coat patterns! It has oversized shoulders, a modest shawl collar and the pockets are stitched into the front pieces. Lining is optional too if you have a fabric which doesn’t need it. It’s another secret pyjamas coat. Take a look at the review below.
The Isla coat from Named Clothingis a classic trench coat and perfect work wear. This would definitely be a challenge for any sewist but the finished coat would be timeless and something you could wear for years. It has all the classic details, double breasted and a lined cape at the shoulders. It also has a deep kick pleat at the back and slanted pockets. A cotton twill or gabardine would be ideal for this make.
This is an all time favourite for us at Fold Line HQ, we just love the photography and styling for this Eagle Jacket by Vanessa Pouzet! It is super chic and great for all body shapes. You shouldn’t have too many fit problems either. Make this coat special with a silk lining as you’ll want to show it off. Make from a lighter weight linen blend in summer and light weigh wool in winter. Looks great with a belt or just left to hang, waterfall style. Use up a favourite fabric from your scraps stash at the shoulder inserts.
