Coat in “Foreign Correspondent”

elainesews | Posted in Patterns on

Hi everyone,

My DH (big movie fan) just screened Hitchcock’s “Foreign Correspondent” (1939) for the family. Laraine Day wears the most awesome coat!! This little picture doesn’t do it justice, but it’s all I could find on Google. Are there any movie fans who can dig up a picture and possibly a pattern for something similar (new or vintage)?

    There are a lot of vintage patterns in the commercial pattern books now, and your coat seems to have a velveteen (or velvet) collar which is all the rage now. Look into available patterns at http://www.sewingpatterns.com

    I can't really see enough of the coat to actually suggest a pattern but this site has only vintage patterns, maybe you'll find something there:


    Good luck and if you find something, will you let us know?


    ETA:  They are actually having 15% off right now - don't forget to use the promo code if you order before 12/31!

    You might try looking up the coat via the Costumer.  I checked your movie and the costumer is listed as I Magnin.  Interesting since that was a fancy woman's store in California.  The Art Director is listed as Alexander Golitzen.

    Just a thought
