Grainline Studio - Paper Sewing Pattern - Yates Coat
The chic style of the Yates Coat will instantly upgrade any cool weather outfit. Inseam pockets and a hidden double breasted snap closure keep the silhouette sleek while the slightly oversized lapel and mid-thigh length give the Yates a modern aesthetic. A full lining and two-piece sleeves ensure you’ll be wearing your Yates for years to come.
Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, setting sleeves, sewing a notched collar, and inserting a lining.
Pattern is nested to facilitate cutting between sizes if needed.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Fabric suggestions: Medium to heavy weight woven coating fabrics such as melton, boiled, or felted wool. Extra fabric may be needed to match plaids, stripes, one-way design prints, or nap.
Lining: Typically you want to line your jacket with something that will easily slide on and off over other fabrics. Anything a little bit slippery would work. Rayon, silk, a cotton with a tight weave. One of our Venezia lining fabrics would be perfect.
Notions: Thread, 4 size #10 – ¾'' snaps, fusible interfacing
