Let's go motoring in that new-fangled jalopy by Henry Ford. Get your coat and goggles! You'll be all set to tackle the horseless carriage once you make this great duster coat. This loose fitting coat was designed to go over your fancy dress and protect it from road dust.
Flared princess seams, double-breasted front and no lining give this coat its signature look. It has a classic notched collar and lapels. Two piece curved sleeves end in a shaped cuff. Patch pockets with a shaped flap, echoing the one on the sleeves, adds a nice detail. There are two versions. View A is low calf length on a person 5' 6". View B is ankle length.
Since there is no lining on this coat, go ahead and try a corduroy or poplin, maybe even a denim fabric. Suit weight linen, wool gabardine, or even a water repellent fabric would also work. This pattern comes in Misses sizes 8 to 16. See the back of the pattern for details. If you are having a hard time reading it, convo me.
Folkwear has been in business a long time and is still in business today. Ursula's Alcove is a licensed dealer. This pattern is new, not used or vintage.
