Hi I want to make an single-breasted coat with an a-line skirt.
The white coat in the middle of this picture is pretty much exactly what I want to make:

but the pattern is vintage and expensive, so I was wondering if there were any more recent patterns with a similar design?
My top priorities are the shape (fitted bodice, a-line skirt, single-breasted), I’d love a hood but I would be willing to give it up if I had to.

    Have you looked in the Vogue pattern catalogue? They had some of similar shapes recently.

    Unfortunately I couldn’t find one – there’s one with a similar shape but it’s double-breasted and that doesn’t suit me at all :/ Unless I’m looking somewhere else, these are all the patterns available right? Is there anywhere to search all patterns? Not by pattern house (ie. butterick etc.), just all the coat patterns available?

      Have a look at, they have all brands and you can search by garment type:

      Then just buy the pattern through them or better yet sign up to their email newsletter, they have a brand on sale each week so wait until it is cheap ;) I never go to the shops anymore, saves me the petrol and disappointment when they don’t have it in my size

    Or have you got a dress pattern like it and you just adapt it and use coat fabric instead? (it might be harder than it sounds i guess but maybe if you did it with a front zip fastening instead of buttoned up it’d be straightforward enough?)
