Pattern Review: Victory Patterns Ulysses Coat

Threads #203, June/July 2019

Victory Patterns: Ulysses

A nontraditional, calf-length trench coat with an angled front hemline, this drapey design can be worn open or closed and fastened with a self-fabric belt. It has epaulets secured with buttons, angled patch pockets with flaps, a center-back hemline vent, and a bias-cut back rain shield. The rain shield has cutouts at the side seams that form belt carriers. The coat is unlined, and all seams are bound with a Hong Kong finish. The instructions are detailed with clear diagrams. Pay attention to the seam allowances because they vary throughout. Select drapey fabrics that look good on both sides, as the wrong side shows along the collar and front edges.

(Sized XS-XL for busts 32–44.5 in. and hips 34–46.5 in.)

Sewing Tip: Use a flat-fell seam instead of a French seam at the center-back collar to reduce bulk.
