The Closet Core Patterns 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 with in-seam pockets, full length sleeves and a dramatic funnel collar.

    • Please note: Closet Case discovered a small error after the pattern went to print. The collar for View A was incorrectly mirrored on the pattern tissue which means 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.
