We have got some wonderful new fabrics in, that we think would be perfect for making coats and jackets. In fact, they have inspired some of our team members to make coats for the first time. As we have been discussing coat patterns, we thought it would be nice to share some of our favourites with you.
In no particular order:

This is a clear cut military style jacket, and we love the length of it. Military jackets and coats never seem to go out of style and suit all ages, so if you are making an investment piece this may be the pattern for you. We think that it would look great made up in our boiled wool.
This coat would be perfect made out of a wool coating fabric, we love its smart yet comfortable style.
Stylish yet snug. We would love this pattern made up in something fleecy!
Some of our team want to try out this pattern, as it is meant to be fairly simple, as coat patterns go. It has an average size collar and it nips you in at the waist, to give a flattering silhouette. Why not recreate the model’s look by using our Donegal fabric?
This gorgeous little jacket can be made out of boiled wool – which means no need for hems! View some suitable fabrics here

If you are after something cool and modern, this is the pattern for you. It is a simple design with no collar, oversized pockets and ¾ length sleeves. If you have someone who fancies themselves as a fashionista, this is the pattern for them.
If you are after a classic, ladylike look then this is the pattern for you. A fit and flare silhouette, teamed with a shawl collar, it couldn’t be more ladylike if it tried.
