A stand out coat for summer evenings or cold winter days - in either waist or full length for 2 very different looks.
This is a perfect "first coat" sew and we've rated it "easy intermediate". You can create the designer look without having to sew a button hole (let's face it - you can wreck a great coat if you don't have a good button hole function on your sewing machine).
- 2 length options - waist or thigh lengths
- Large flap featured pocket (optional)
- 2 collar options (round or square)
- Collars can either stand up or fold down depending on preference
- Fully lined
- Trans seasonal - a coat for winter warmth or summer evening
- Instructions to create optional featured couture cross (for oversized dome closures)
- Other closure options (buttons, domes, toggles, oversized hook and eye)
- Sizes NZ/AU 6-22
Many of you have asked where to get the square snap fasteners.

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here.
3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.
You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.
