Buy the Men’s Bernard Coat sewing pattern from Vikisews. Bernard is a men’s semi-fitted double-breasted coat with a straight silhouette. The coat is designed to be worn in between seasons. The tailored fit is achieved by the side panels with princess seams on the front and back, and the centre back seam. The front features two bottom welt pockets and a chest welt pocket on the left side. Long, set-in, two-piece sleeves have faux vents with three buttons on each. The jacket collar with a collar stand is paired with long lapels folded down to the waistline. The coat fastens with two buttons and buttonholes. The centre back seam has a vent. The coat is fully lined and is below-the-knee length.
