The Copenhagen Coat is an un-lined, knee-length easy-fit coat perfect for Autumn/Spring. The coat is designed with roomy patch pockets, one statement button and a pinked edge. Great for a first coat project, or if you need a stylish new look for the weekend.
FIT A generous fit, with room to wear over a sweater.
VARIATIONS The pattern is designed to be knee-length but it would work just as well as a 3/4 length jacket, mid-calf coat or floor-sweeper!
LEVEL A coat might seem like a big project but in fact coat-weight fabrics are surprisingly easy to work with and because there is a generous ease they are not difficult to fit. Have a go!
FABRIC Choose a double-face fabric that doesn't fray as you will see both sides. Examples are boiled wool, felt-type wools, Melton wool, Doeskin, bonded fabrics, faux-suede or leather (for the more experienced you could easily patch together some skins for the real deal). You will need 2.2m/21/2 yards of fabric, at least 140cm/56" wide.
HABERDASHERY A nice big button. OPTIONAL: 50cm/20" double-sided iron-on tape for the back vent, a coat hanging chain.
You will need some pinking shears or a rotary cutter with a pinking blade.
