STELLA COAT - UK Sizes 8 - 26 - Roll Collar - Fully lined - Pockets - Belt - PAPER SEWING PATTERN by Dovetailed
A gorgeous coat with added 'wow' factor and the fifth stand-alone pattern from the Dovetailed London range! If you have not made a coat before, you will love making the Stella Coat. Smaller to medium-sized scale prints work best for this garment so avoid very large prints and motifs. The coat has been designed with a stunning roll-collar, is fully lined with optional interlining, complete with long sleeves, in-seam pockets and a belt, perfect for cinching in at the waist!
There are multiple fabric options and as such this project is a great stash buster. In the featured coat I used an African wax print fabric for the outer coat that I have called 'Drop A Pebble in the Water', satin viscose for the lining and a cotton domette for the interlining. You can use one fabric for the coat back and front, a different fabric for the collar, a different fabric for the lining, etc., The choice is yours!
Top tip: please toile! What do I mean by a toile? A toile is a mock-up (a dry run). Please do this in muslin fabric before making this coat in your best fabric. This way, you have a chance to familiarise yourself with the coats' constructional steps (and, yes, unpick as many times as you may need to) without doing so on your best fabric.
This coat has no fiddly zips, buttons or fastenings.
