Coat pattern

Nik-ki | Posted in Patterns on

I just purchased yards of gorgeous hot pink/heather grey doublesided cashmere/wool for a full coat.  Where can I find coat patterns during this time of year?

    Hi Nik-ki,

    http://www.sewingpatterns.com seems to have all seasons for sale.  They have a variety of makers' patterns in one spot so it's easy to try to fine what you are looking for.


    ETA:  I almost forgot - they are also having a really good sale this weekend, too!

    Your cashmere fabric sounds gorgeous. Once you have selected a pattern be sure to make a test coat in a fabric of similar weight to ensure that the finished garment is what you want, before you cut into your fabric. You do not want to waste such beautiful cloth on a big, and no doubt expensive, disappointment!

    When selecting a pattern I would avoid those by The Sewing Workshop. Most of them are copies of Issey Miyake designs in Vogue, with minor alterations to get round the copyright laws. These patterns are produced by the 'designer' of the rectangular patterns under current discussion in another section. Do you want such a garment, with all the headaches over the instructions? I think not!

    Good luck with your project, and be sure to post a photograph in due course so we can admire your beautiful creation ... and be envious!

    I think Malindi has the right idea - make up the "toile" in a fabric similar to the weight of your coating. If you have an old blanket it would be ideal. I did this when making up the Simplicity/Threads pattern 4403 and it worked a treat.

    I think http://www.lanetzliving.net would be worth a look - Janet has patterns for every season and every style there.

    Hi Nik-ki,

    I get sale notifications from Butterick, McCalls and Vogue about every month online.  I can purchase all four seasons patterns all year long from say winter 2007 or their vintage patterns from years ago in overstocks from their website.  I don't know if this is what you might be looking for or not. 

    I bought one of Butterick's Classic's Wool coats patterns online of course I didn't get it for a steal a sale price for a 1.00.  I think I ended up paying 7.00 for it on the website, but I noticed it is still in last Fall's/Winter's 2007 Butterick Catalog.   

    I did pay sale price for my melton wool at 7.00 a yard in March on Fashion.com.  When I was looking for wool at the only fabric store in my local city.  I asked the sales girl to direct me to the leftover wool section and she replied, "We don't make anymore wool these days.  People just don't ask for it; because it is too expensive."

    That is when I knew I had to go online shopping or make a trip out of town.  I really end up buying most of my supplies, books, patterns and most everything online or out of town.  Everyone here wants to quilt I guess they don't want to have to fit a pattern.
