It’s getting nippy out there! Making it the perfect time to create a Simplicity coat for the colder months ahead.
And having spotted GBSB’s Rumana in a fabulous 1960s vintage Simplicity coat, we’ve decided the time for sewing a stand out coat is now!
Here are our favourite picks of Simplicity coats this season:
May Martin’s pick: 1254
You’re in good company with this choice! Handpicked by the fabulous May Martin as her favourite Simplicity coat.
It has a dramatic over-sized collar that can be worn as a shawl or hood for extra warmth.
Easy to Sew: 1067
Simplicity’s 1067 coat pattern may be easy to sew, but that doesn’t mean it is any less stylish.
The five-piece pattern, which includes both coat and jacket designs is an Autumn must have that you can bring out year after year.
The coat with a cape: 1016
We absolutely love this Simplicity coat pattern, designed by Mimi G – it’s seriously versatile.
Sized for miss & plus stitchers, the pattern has a collarless design, patch pockets with buttoned flap, optional belt & a removable cape with collar & epaulettes.
The cape can also be worn on its own. Sounds like a winner to us!
Show us your makes!
