Elemental Coat Sewing Pattern

The pattern was designed to be simple enough for a beginner sewist or quilter to make, but with plenty of room for more experienced sewists to put their own spin on it. All the seams are fairly straight, there’s no fancy stitching techniques (though I do include a few construction techniques that might surprise you!) and it’s finished with a simple quarter-inch binding to make it extra easy for the quilters in the house.

One of my favorite aspects is how customizable it is. You truly get to choose exactly the features you want:

Length: Full-length hits about mid-thigh, Mid-length lands at the hips and Cropped ends just above the waist line.
Sleeves: Choose between 3/4 sleeves or wrist-length sleeves (or add a few inches and make a cuffed sleeve!)
Pockets: An interesting construction method keeps the pockets slim (and hidden on quilt coats, if wanted). They are optional, of course, but who doesn’t want pockets!
Hood: You can easily add the hood for a casual look and even line it if you want.
Collar: If you’d rather have a collar instead of the hood, it’s an easy change and makes for a fun, notched lapel finish. You can do neither and simply bind the neckline instead.
Closure: Add a button and loop for an easy closure or leave it open for easy-on/easy-off. (I’ve got a hack coming soon for adding a zipper!)
