Classic Coats for Football Games

Here we have two great coats for football games and leisure walks around town or in the country.

My drawing today was in inspired by my daily walks with my daughter. Around 6:30 each morning we usually take a three mile walk, stopping in at McDonalds for our morning coffee.

On the left, dolman sleeves give this comfortable 1956 woman's coat a soft silhouette. With its large patch pockets, flowing fullness, and simple tie closure this warm coat is an easy to wear casual.

Sporting a 1952 classic black and white checked plaid swing coat, the young girl on the right is ready for any activity that comes her way.

These coats are taken from two separate patterns: Butterick 3842 (left) Suggested Fabrics: Felt, Lining: Printed Cottons; Wool Jersey, Lightweight Tweed;
Simplicity 4191 (right) Suggested Fabric: Cotton, Ottoman, Wool, Fleece

Both patterns are available at today with Etsy seller: shellmakeyouflip

Girls Coat Pattern: (Uncut) $23.00 Bust 34 
Woman’s Coat Pattern $18.00 Bust 32
