Sewing Pattern, Grainline Studio, Cascade Duffle Coat
The Cascade Duffle Coat is a fresh take on a classic shape, featuring a slight A-line cut, toggle front closure, and a hidden zipper band to keep the coat shut tight against cold weather. The hem of View A hits at the hip while View B's falls to mid-thigh. Although View A is shown with a collar and View B with a hood, both are interchangeable, allowing you to create your own perfect coat.
Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, setting sleeves, attaching a collar or hood, and inserting a lining. Pattern is nested to facilitate cutting between sizes if needed.
Medium to heavy weight coating fabrics such as melton, boiled, or felted wool. View A can alternately be made up in a canvas or twill for a lighter weight jacket. Recommended lining is rayon or a similar fabric. If you'd like a pop of color or pattern, try cutting your hood lining and zipper bands from flannel.
