Ellsworth Coat

Christine Haynes

The Ellsworth Coat is a fully lined classic 1960’s-inspired double breasted overcoat. The coat features elegant topstitching down the front, around the notched collar, down the center back, at the yoke seams, and on the sides of the deep patch pockets.

Side panels provide a comfortable and flattering fit with subtle curves. The set-in sleeves land at the wrist bone, and the coat hem extends to mid-thigh. The coat is designed with plenty of ease to wear over your favorite layer. Or choose to size it down for a closer fit. The choice is yours!

The Ellsworth Coat is filled with classic details, but is easy enough for advanced beginner or intermediate sewers. And for advanced sewers, the coat provides a blank canvas for all kinds of hacks and upgrades.

The coat is sized from 0–18.

    This pattern is the bee’s knees! This was the first proper coat I have made (except a coatigan a few months back) and I would class it as the perfect entry level coat. There are enough details to make it look interesting and special, such as top-stitching and a notched collar, and the patched pockets and merciful lack of welt pockets make it doable for a scardy-cat like me.

    I used a wool/acrylic coating from my local market and a standard acetate lining. You can use either 8 or 6 buttons for this and as I only had 6 the coat can’t be buttoned all the way to the top but I have a perfectly complementary snood and it works a treat.

    The instructions were very clear and were accompanied by detailed drawings/diagrams which is always a bonus. All in all it took me about a week – a full day of sewing on the Sunday and then evenings after work.

    I had heard it runs a bit big so I sized down one size based on my bust measurements. I also took the sleeves up 1.5cm as I always have to alter arm lengths but I don’t think this was even necessary.

    I have written a full review on my blog if anyone fancies a more detailed read

  2. Ellsworth Coat


    I’m really thrilled with this coat! Very comfy and a simple, streamlined shape that still has an interesting 1960s style and cool lapels. Yes, please.

    Made up this time in a cropped length which is my favourite length for jackets anyway. Also, this is the first time I’ve made this coat pattern so it was a chance for me to check the fit, before taking the big plunge with lots of expensive wool fabric.

    I did my usual FBA which in this case has given me some lovely Dior darts, which I think suit the jacket and style really well. I also added inseam pockets, and again they work really well. I’d do these again for sure, as I’m not a huge fan of patch pockets. For now I’ve only added 2 self-fabric buttons but I’ll possibly add another 2 in due course. I only owned 3 self-cover buttons in this size, so couldn’t do them all on the weekend when I was sewing this up.

    I am really happy with the shape, the fit, and the comfort level this jacket is giving me.

    There’s a little more, and a few additional pics, on my blog post here:
