This coat is perfect for all seasons. Available in three versions, you can mix and match and create a timeless classic.
All views have princess seams and an inset side bodice and Views A and B have a full pleat in the front. The back has the same princess seams and side bodice, with a very full pleat in the center. View B has a bow, and View C has a classic belt secured with buttons. The coats are fully lined, including the sleeves, and the lining has a ruffle on the bottom for fullness. The coats can be made in various lengths for different looks.
The cloche hat is fully lined, and the brim curves up at the side. Two views have a fabric bow, and View C is embellished with a button.
There are two collar variations. Views A and C have a round collar and instructions are included for sewing with fur. View B has a straight collar, which may be folded back to form lapels.
The PDF pattern pieces are drawn with a CAD program, and include highly detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures to guide you through the sewing process.

I have several of Crabapples patterns which I love. I have sewn heirloom and other difficult techniques for 40 years+. However, I was disappointed in this one because several of the pattern pieces weren't marked completely. I had to get a magnifying glass to read the diagrams and them mark them. I contacted PF and Crabapples and both contacted me initially. The coat is beautiful and the construction steps are somewhat unique. This is not the first pattern I have purchased from PF that was not marked fully, but the designer did send a corrected one. It would really help if the designers patterns could be verified before posting them.
The hat top pieces weren't marked to distinguish back, side front, and there wasn't pleat lines on the front coat section. Very confusing. I have used many of Crabapples patterns before and loved them but I am disappointed in this one.
the pattern worked out well easy to follow instructions
The instructions were easy to understand and the pattern fit very well!!
