The Sew Over It 1960's Coat is elegant and stylish, designed to stay swingy yet fitted. The 1960’s Coat is is a versatile piece, that will work as well with jeans as with a vintage-inspired dress.
The design features buttons down the front, a sleek ‘60s shape, a neat pointed collar, slick centre back seam and adjustable length.
For the 1960’s Coat we recommend a medium to heavyweight fabric such as tweed, boucle, melton, jacquard and boiled wool. If you are new to sewing coats we recommend avoiding fabrics with a very loose weave (such as boucle) as these fray easily and can make your sewing more tricky.
The 1960’s Coat is fully-lined, so you will also need lining fabric such as acetate, crepe or polyester, as well as tailoring interfacing, two 10cm x 23cm pieces of ice wool wadding and 6-8 x 2.5cm wide buttons. You will also need an additional 2.5cm wide jigger button, ensuring this is fairly flat as it will be on the inside of the coat. It’s up to you whether you add eye-catching shoulder pads to accentuate the ’60s silhouette.
