Clare Coat Pattern by Closet Core

$30.00

The Clare Coat is a chic cool-weather staple. Featuring raglan sleeves and an unstructured A-line silhouette, Clare is a great introduction to the joys of coat making.

View A hits at mid thigh, with a face-framing collar, princess sleeves, exposed asymmetrical zipper and welt pockets. View B has a more minimalist vibe; double breasted, it ends at the hip hip with inseam pockets, full length sleeves and a dramatic funnel collar.

Errata: The collar for View A was incorrectly mirrored on the printed pattern tissue; the notches are inaccurate, although the pattern piece shape is correct. All pattern booklets include a download link for an updated piece with the correct notches; you can also download it here.
