    This vintage pattern from 1931 is truly exceptional. It is a waist length, unlined jacket with raglan sleeves.

There are 2 views: one with a tie closure at the center front waist; and one without the ties, featuring a double breasted button closure or no closure with the jacket front draped open. Choose a light to medium weight fabric. Linen, rayon, silks, challis, wool, light weight suiting. The front is self-lined so take this into consideration when choosing your fabric.

Color block the sections or make it all from one fabric for a more subtle look. Suggested fabrics: lightweight wool, linen, heavy silk, bottom weight rayon.

  7. 1940s Claremont Coat by Decades of Style Quickview

    1940s Claremont Coat by Decades of Style

    This vintage pattern is from the early 1940s. This light-weight coat has so many pretty details it is hard to know where to start when describing it. It was meant to be a lightweight coat worn over a dress so it has less ease than you might expect from a modern coat. It is more of a layering piece than a coat for real warmth. Single breasted coat has a deep shaped front yoke finished with a lapped seam. A lapped seam is also used to finish the top of the center back panel. Lining and side seam pockets optional. Medium weight fabrics suggested: wool, velveteen, gabardine, wool flannel, bottom-weight rayons, linen.

    SIZES:  All sizes are included in this pattern - please see back of pattern for more information.
