Season - Summer

Mallard Coat

Size Guide

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

>DIFFICULTY LEVEL:  Easy Intermediate (3/5).
