Waffle Patterns: Pepernoot Hooded Coat

This lined A-line coat has a raised waistline; fitted bodice shaped with darts; contoured, high-neck, three-piece hood; curved front and back yokes; a center-front zipper with a shield; two-piece sleeves with buttoned tabs; and zippered patch pockets. The PDF pattern file is layered, meaning it is possible to print only the size needed. There are some unconventional notations on the pattern pieces, explained in a guide that is printed with the pattern pieces. The 12 pages of instructions are colorful, accurate, and contain more than 75 illustrations. Our tester noticed that the yoke needs to be flipped in illustration no. 10. Place the shorter side next to the neckline edge. Our staff seamstress found the marked pleat in the lower back lining too small. She made it twice as big so that the lower back lining fit the back bodice lining. Select wool or wool-blend coatings.

(Sized European 34–48 for busts 31.5-43.3 in. and hips 33.8-45.6 in.)

Sewing Tip: Keep scissors and pressing tools handy, as there are many curved seams to grade, clip, and press.
