    The ZW coat is an unlined unisex oversized coat with a batwing sleeve, round collar and patch pockets. The short coat has a front button closure and the long coat has a front button closure and waist tie. Also comes with tips on how to cut a lining if you want to add this.

    This pattern comes with 2 options, a short and a long coat. The short coat is suitable for beginners and up, the long coat is more suited to mid-intermediate sewers, however if you make the short coat as your first project and progress to the long coat for your next one this would work well as a lot of the steps are the same.

     

    Techniques used

    Button holes, patch pockets, binding seams (optional), attaching a collar, hand sewing (optional)

    Fabric Recommendations

    Ideal in a mid heavy weight wool coating. This can also work in a lighter wool or cotton drill for more of a light jacket or trench coat style, you will need to make sure you fuse part of your collar if you choose a lighter weight fabric.


    Recommended Fabric Width

    145 – 160 cm / 57 – 63 inches

    Fabric Required

    Short coat: 140cm / 55 1/2 inches (approx. 1.55 yards) 

    Long coat: 200cm / 78 inches (approx. 2.2 yards)

    Notions (Optional)

    -Bias tape or binding approx. 3 metres / 118 inches. This can be used to finish some of the seams on the inside and is a really nice finish when using heavy coating. You can use either a pre cut binding from a roll or cut your own using a lightweight cotton or linen.

    -Buttons x 3. Recommended size 2 - 2.5cm / ¾ – 1 inch.

    -Iron on fusing, approx. 25cm / 10 inch. Only required if you are using a lighter weight fabric and is used to fuse the inside of the collar and front facings.

    -Elastic or a length of cord. This is required if you are doing the short coat hack to gather in the back hem. The size of elastic is determined by how much you want to bring in the hem.

    -Lining. This coat doesn’t need a lining but the booklet includes tips on how to add one if you want to for some extra warmth. More info in the booklet on this.
