Overcoat meets duster. An oversized coat for striding through town and country with purpose.

Choose to make either lined or unlined. The September works for a variety of seasons, in oilskin or wool it can be a proper winter coat, or in linen it feels like a casual throw on.

This is a multi-size Paper pattern, sizes UK 6 – 18.

Skill level – intermediate.

All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.

Suggested fabrics – Dry oilskin, oilskin, mid – heavyweight linens, 7 – 12oz denim, wool, corduroy, cotton twills or canvas. A heavier weight cloth will result in a more structured coat. For the lining, we’d suggest using Barrier Lining if you are using oilskin. You could also use cotton voile, lightweight linen, cotton poplin, hemp/cotton, lightweight wools or a traditional slip lining.

A note on sizing:

The September has an oversized fit, always consult the finished measurements table to see how much ease you’d like in your coat. For example, Elwen in the video is wearing a size 10 but could wear 8-14 depending on the fit she wanted.
