Vogue 9212

Vogue 9212






How fun is this coat?  I grabbed some home dec fabric off the sale table at Joanne and used some lining from my stash.


Here it is turned inside out, you can see that the facing is another full front.


Simple snaps for the closure (I made covered snaps).

This coat really is easy to make with no fancy details;  I really tried to overthink it though, adding shoulder pads which I removed, inserting sleeve heads which I removed.  I did leave a back stay, but that’s the only deviation from the pattern instructions.  There is that corner you have to turn at the collar, but that’s the only tricky bit.  I made a size 12 with a forward shoulder adjustment, a la Palmer Pletsch (my go-to resource is the book “Fit for Real People”).  This seems to help with my shoulder fitting issues.  It’s not perfect yet, but we’re getting there. 


This is an interesting coat, with the sort of cut away front.  It has a bit of a historical vibe like this one.  At least, that’s what I was thinking when I was sewing this up

I recommend this pattern, it’s not too terribly hard.  I’ll have a picture with it on me at some point.  I love how the jacket is styled on the Vogue website: worn with leggings and boots.  Perfect!

  1. It is a lovely design. One of the last jackets I made was with a curtain fabric. I just love it to bits. Your fabric looks strong and elegant. Nice work!

  2. This is lovely. Home dec fabric is always a treasure trove!
