I am Rê, a classic duffle coat. I am an iconic, timeless garment loaded with the elements and details of the original Montgomery coat: toggle closures, a 3-piece hood with button tab, a shoulder yoke, two large patch pockets with flaps, a two-piece sleeve and a tightening tab. I have a straight cut but still feel fitted. I have 2 length options: hip and mid-thigh. I am a classic garment that will delight all sewists looking to create a long-lasting wardrobe.
I AM Patterns are designed to be traced off. The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. This means that you will be able to make multiple sizes of the garment and adjust the pattern as you trace it if necessary. For this you could use tracing paper, baking parchment, thin wrapping paper; or we can supply you with some spot and cross pattern paper.
All seam allowances are included in the pattern. The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.
