Pattern Description

Don’t you love it when your coat is trend-resistant, and you can reach for it year after year? The Francis coat has a timeless silhouette, perfect for your favorite denim, twill, or coatings. It’s fully lined, with details that are satisfying to sew and will make you feel very proud when you’re all finished.

Fish-eye darts provide gentle shaping on the back, and the curvy size range features bust darts for additional shaping. In-seam pockets, a spread collar with a partial stand, and a sharp button placket add polish, and a waist belt finishes this classic silhouette.
