Merchant & Mills brings you The September sewing pattern.
Overcoat meets duster. An oversized coat for striding through town and country with purpose. Choose to make either lined or unlined. The September works for a variety of seasons, in oilskin or wool it can be a proper winter coat, or in linen it feels like a casual throw on.
Skill level: Intermediate
There are 2 multi-size options available:
- a multi-size paper pattern including sizes 6-18.
- a multi-size paper pattern including sizes 18-28. (These patterns will be sent unpacked – envelope and pattern separate, as they are bulky and this way the envelope won’t be distorted in transit)
All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless stated otherwise and are included in the pattern.
Suggested fabrics: Dry oilskin, oilskin, mid - heavyweight linens, 7 - 12oz denim, wool, corduroy, cotton twills, linen or canvas. A heavier weight cloth will result in a more structured coat.
For the lining, we'd suggest using Barrier Lining if you are using oilskin. You could also use cotton voile, lightweight linen, cotton poplin, hemp/cotton, lightweight wools or a traditional slip lining.
You will also need:
- Matching thread.
- Buttons - 5 x 20mm or 30mm
- Interfacing (optional but recommended for most fabrics) - 1.3m
