This long-line, oversized, unlined coat has a relaxed style and features a collarless neckline with stitched down facing, dropped shoulders, patch pockets and full-length sleeves with turned back cuffs. The coat front sits edge-to-edge without overlap, making it the perfect lightweight layering piece for the autumn/winter months. As seams are overlapped and edges and hems left raw, the Florence Coat is best made up in boiled or felted wools that do not fray when cut.
UPDATE - *To make the Florence Coat pattern with pockets, download pocket/pocket lining pattern pieces (4 pages to print on home printer) and sewing instructions for woven Florence Coat here. Please also note that you will need to allow for an extra 20cm fabric meterage.
