1949 Swing coat pattern in 96 cm/ 37.8" bust
This hip length swing-back coat from 1949 is a simple and comfortable
style for autumn. It has a high collar to keep the neck warm against the
chilling winds. The original pattern included a pattern piece for the
pocket flap, but not an actual pocket; therefore, I have made a patch
pocket piece to help you (I appreciate pockets!). The original design
has the front edges of the coat meeting on the centre front line, i.e.
without an overlap for buttons, however, this could easily be adapted to
make a buttoned front. The sleeves have wide cuffs for extra styling
and the main seams on the coat are accentuated with thick topstitching.
Wear it with a slim skirt for best effect.
