Pattern Review: Vogue 1331 – Misses’ Coat

Threads magazine - 175 - Oct./Nov. 2014 Issue

Sewing Tip: If you plan to machine-couch yarn to the coat's front, do so before slipstitching the pockets to the coat interior.

This review was originally featured in Threads #175 (October/November 2014).

Vogue 1331

This Koos van den Akker knee-length coat is distinguished by its contrasting front panels with large oval cutouts. The unlined A-line coat has extended shoulders, double-layer sleeves, a two-piece collar, welt pockets, and a front button closure. The shoulder, side, underarm, and armscye are finished with flat-fell seams, and the hem is turned to the right side and stitched in place. Yarn is couched along the oval cutouts, hem edge, collar, collar band, front opening, and sleeve edges. Use lightweight boiled or worsted wool for the coat body, moderate stretch knits for the sleeves, and a jersey or woven fabric for the front panels.

(Sized Misses’ 6-22 for busts 30.5-44 in. and hips 32.5-46 in.)

Sewing Tip: If you plan to machine-couch yarn to the coat’s front, do so before slipstitching the pockets to the coat interior.
