254 Swing Coat - PDF

$24.00

Extra Small to Extra Large.

This easy, breezy coat is a snap to make, with just four main pattern pieces. The front pieces have neck extensions that stitch together at center back to form the collar. The back is stitched into a back yoke and features a deep pleat for maximum "swing."

Sleeves are narrow at the wrist so you can push them up for a casual look, and they stay put. The pattern offers two pocket versions: side-seam and patch.
