Closet Case Patterns
Buy the Clare coat sewing pattern from Closet Case Patterns is perfect for an intermediate dressmaker. This pattern is stuffed with great details and you have two options to choose from. View A hits at mid thigh, with a face-framing collar, princess sleeves, exposed asymmetrical zipper and welt pockets. View B has a more minimalist vibe; double breasted, it ends at the hip hip with inseam pockets, full length sleeves and a dramatic funnel collar.
What we think: There are two quite different make options for this coat, the funnel neck version is perfect for winter and keeping the wind off your face. This is a big project so take it slow and make sure you have lots of breaks! If you need a little hand holding why not checkout Heather’s sew-along for this pattern.
Suggested Fabrics: Medium to heavyweight coating fabrics (ie.melton, felt, tweed and boiled wool). Bottomweight fabrics like denim, twill and canvas are also suitable for a lightweight spring jacket.
This sewing pattern is available in PAPER format.
