We would like to introduce you to our latest pattern…
The Bianca Coat
This is a another relaxed and easy shape to wear. The loose fit ‘coatigan’ has a dropped shoulder line to add ease and comfort.
Waterfall Collar, Turnback Cuffs and Pockets – of course!
The waterfall collar softens the neckline and frames the face. And the turn back cuffs echo the glimpse of reverse fabric revealed by the fall of the collar. And of course no coat would be complete without handy pockets to keep your hands warm in.
Easy to Make
The Bianca Coat is very easy to put together using either a normal sewing machine to give a raw edge finish or you can use an overlocker to neaten and give a semi finished edge. It looks fantastic using contrasting coloured thread too.
Great for Beginners
As you can see from the tester’s comments the pattern comes together very quickly and could easily be made in an afternoon.
We have run this as a workshop and have released it as a pattern due to popular demand. It is just the garment for the change in seasons and although we are heading into Spring it is still chilly enough to need an extra layer.
The coat requires about 2.5m of 150cm wide fabric and it works well in boiled wool, double Jersey, scuba and wool suiting.
Here are just a few of the comments from our pattern testers…
“The coatigan was a dream to make. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow, especially with the added diagrams. I really liked the fact that the pattern instructions contained a glossary this was really beneficial. I am not a very confident sewer but thanks to your pattern and instructions I feel on top of the world with the garment I have made, thank you..” Judith
“Great coatigan pattern, swift make, could be pimped to make your own style, with different trimings, thread choices. Loved it on first try on. This is the 3rd pattern I have used of yours.” Helen
“A simple and quick pattern to make with lovely results.” Charlotte
“Clear concise instructions. One of the easiest garments I’ve made.” Angela
“I really enjoyed making the Bianca Coat. The instructions are clearly laid out, the pattern pieces fit together easily and the coat fronts have been cleverly designed to produce a lovely waterfall effect.” Janet
