1940s Claremont Coat by Decades of Style

1940s Claremont Coat by Decades of Style

$23.00
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.
