HP 1195 Plain and Simple Scooter Jacket and Car Coat




“Plain and Simple”…when the fabric needs to speak for itself.

The pattern, that is…


What can I say?  I’m a sucker for beautiful home dec fabrics.  Don’t we all need to have a car coat of couch fabric in our closets???


There are some nice details with this pattern:


I’ve never done a pocket this way before, it’s a single welt all-in-one pocket, great for using when you have bulky fabrics.


This fabric was just as pretty on the inside, so I just serged all seams and kept it unlined.


I used large snaps for the closures; there are simple facings and no collar.



I cut a straight size 12, and the fit seems to be very roomy.  I think I would try the smaller size next time.

If you don’t want to try the pocket detail, I think side seam pockets would be just as pretty.

This is a great pattern to use when you want to showcase a great fabric!

  1. Your fabric caught my attention right away! Love your coat!
