My 1930's Summer Coat

You might have read about Sherry’s RTW Sew-along on her blog “Pattern-Scissors-Cloth”. It was such a great tutorial, I highly recommend it! Her Link is below. (Credits). I made this coat, which is out of a magazine from 1938. It actually came in my size, I only made small fit alterations. I have posted about it on my blog Of Dreams and Seams, if you want to read more about it. I have a feeling it will become one of my favorite pieces of clothing I have ever made…

    I am in love with a coat. Is that possible? Those buttons, stripes, the cut, everything about it is perfect!

      Thank you so much – it is an old pattern from “Deutsche Moden-Zeitung”, Nr. 25 from 1938… I have already made inquiries to the publishing company about the rights – I am waiting for the answer whether I am allowed to share these old patterns or not…

    There is something almost ringmaster-y about it. Fun coat.

    Looking at your amazing coat, one would never have guessed it is a pattern from the 30’s, one would only be in total awe of the great job you put behind making it.
