1960s Coat pattern by Sew Over It.
Inspired by the simple 1960’s silhouette and designed to stay swingy yet fitted, the 1960’s Coat exudes elegance and style. Team with a pair of skinny jeans or slip it on over a vintage-inspired dress to add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit! The 1960’s Coat is easy-to-wear, versatile number which complements any outfit and is a must-sew for Autumn/Winter.
Stay snug by securing the buttons down the front, and choose to cover yours in matching fabric or make a statement with a contrasting pop of colour. The timeless design offers a sleek ‘60s shape and with a neat pointed collar, slick centre back seam and adjustable length – this one’s a keeper!
This is a multi-sized pattern in UK sizes 6-20. For sizings and fabric yardage, see images.
For the 1960’s Coat we recommend a medium to heavyweight fabric such as tweed, boucle, melton, jacquard and boiled wool. If you are new to sewing coats we recommend avoiding fabrics with a very loose weave (such as boucle) as these fray easily and can make your sewing more tricky.
The 1960’s Coat is fully-lined, so you will also need lining fabric such as acetate, crepe or polyester.
- Two 10cm x 23cm pieces of ice wool wadding
- 6-8 x 2.5cm wide buttons
- You will also need an additional 2.5cm wide jigger button, ensuring this is fairly flat as it will be on the inside of the coat.
- Optional: Shoulder pads to accentuate the ’60s silhouette
The 1960’s Coat is designed with intermediate stitchers and above in mind.
