1940s | Coats | Pattern Drafting | Vintage Sewing

my latest project

January 2, 2012

Hi Guys I thought you might like to see the picture of the 1940s princess coat in green baby cord…I have just finished it ..yey!!

all but the button holes which I am going to have done professionaly at D & M buttons in london.

I took the day dress pattern in the picture ( simplicity 2161) as a referance then drafted my own pattern as I wanted to make princess seams and the bust in the pattern was 32″ the coat is 40″ bust,  The extra large shoulders have two pads one built in the other poppered in so they can be remove if the coat is worn with a dress with pads… If you look carefully the front is wrapped the wrong way, because I havent put the button holes in yet and  I wanted to show you the buttons.

This coat was made for one of my ladies and the fabric and design choices were all hers…I hope she likes it. 🙂
