E-Pattern- Veronica 1940s Coat - Bust 30"-42"
A Wearing History Resto-Vival™ pattern based on an original historical coat pattern from the 1940’s.
This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper. This is a large pattern and uses a lot of paper. Also includes copy shop size A0.
Intermediate Difficulty. The coat may be lined or unlined. Period instructions are more minimal than modern instruction, so you may wish to have a sewing and/or tailoring book handy for extra construction help. We will be posting blog posts to help with certain construction points as well.
— ORIGINAL PERIOD PATTERN DESCRIPTION —
“Misses’ and Women’s Coat, in three lengths, is dart-fitted on shoulder and seamed down center back. The fronts, trimmed with patch pockets, are rolled in one with the collar to form revers. Style I– Long coat is trimmed with stitching and pockets are closed with buttons. Style II– has a belt tied around the waistline. Style III– is a short box model.”
We have supplied an alternate sleeve cap to use with this pattern, as the original period draft of the sleeve had more gathers than the illustration.

--- About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns ---
Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
