Buy the Baby/Child/Teen Cato Coat and Bomber Jacket sewing pattern from WISJ Designs. Cato is a versatile pattern for a coat or jacket with raglan sleeves and pockets tucked away in the front. Make the long version for a classier coat or make a cool bomber jacket with cuffs. Choose a simple lining or go for a neater finish with a facing and lining. Choose a hood (with or without a drawstring) to go with your bomber jacket or if you want to make a raincoat. Or choose a simple neckband. You can make Cato as complicated or as simple as you like: sew a full option coat or sew a simple jacket!
