The Duffle Coat

We did do a little more than just enjoy these all summer long.

This fall we’re releasing two new patterns: The Duffle Coat and The Little Duffle Coat. With a reoccurring request for adult and children’s clothes, we thought it was time for something cute and casual and for the kids– unisex!

If your familiar with sewing our patterns, you’ll notice some similarities to the Hooded Jacket. Its comfy fit and easy to install zipper is truly a thing of beauty. We’ve added pockets, arm tabs, and trim to make this coat unique. If you experience cold winters like we do up here in Canada (eh?), lining The Duffle Coat with something fuzzy makes it cozy and warm. For a lighter version, we experimented with 2 layers of cotton and found it it makes up beautifully and feels good too!

You can really start to have fun with the toggles or buttons and loops you choose to put on your coat! You can buy pre-made toggle sets (here’s a place we found) but we also had fun chopping up old leather purses to make our own. If that’s not your thing, stitched bias or cord with fun buttons is such a great alternative.

We wont be at Fall Quilt Market this year, so we wanted to get the word out a tad early. Follow up with your Distributors for ordering info. They should(crossing our fingers) be ready to ship early November. Hope your all having a wonderful Autumn Day.
