Vintage Sewing Patterns - Coats Part 1
Today, I'm sharing a couple of vintage coat patterns. Above is Vogue 1566 circa 1956. The pattern is sized for teens and features a kimono sleeve coat in two lengths. I just love the illustration on this pattern. The hat on view B is adorable! And I wish I had the bag that View A is carrying.
Like our first pattern Vogue 8945 is a kimono sleeve coat from 1956. However, this pattern is a little more mature and could even be styled for evening wear. The pattern description for Vogue 8945 reads: "Very slightly flared coat with shaped collar has pockets in side seams. Three quarter length or long kimono sleeves."
What do you think? Would you like to have a coat like one of these? Which is your favorite?
