I had been wanting to get into remaking some of my vintage patterns. This coat pattern has been floating around and finally I decided to do it.
The pattern was tattered old and disintegrating even as I unfolded the instructions. So I copied the pattern onto pattern paper, made some changes to the pattern and made the coat.
The fabric is an embroidered floral fabric, patchworked with coordination silk satin and other embroidered fabrics. Also embellished with silk flowers and beads. The coat is fully lined.
The pattern size is 16, but that was back in the day.
The coat fits 36" bust - 45" + bust The coat is a loose fitting coat with lots of room for that puffy skirt which was popular back in the day.
