--- DESCRIPTION ---
This "Resto-Vival" pattern is from around 1937 for a casual coat. This coat may either be fingertip or knee length. Casually belted, it has full raglan sleeves and both welt and patch pockets, it is loose enough to wear over your sweaters. It buttons at side front and may be made either with a hood or a collar. This coat may be lined or unlined. Select views of this coat may be made from 70” by 80” blankets (enlarge the back cover image for what versions may be made from blankets). This coat fits loosely and it is most critically fitted at shoulder width and neck, then the full body is belted in. The perfect solution to keeping warm, this casual coat pairs well with jeans, trousers, or skirts. This pattern is for the coat only.
Go by measurements (given in inches). Size numbers are period vintage do not equate to modern pattern sizing.

This pattern was based on a size 16 (Bust 34) historic pattern and has been tested for that size only. This pattern was originally not available in sizes 20 & 22 (Bust 38 and 40). This pattern has been supplemented with layout charts for most versions in these sizes but does not include layouts for the blanket coat other than the short hoodless version. The other versions to be made from blankets will require more than one blanket and do not include layout charts or yardage requirements. The sample of the pattern was made up in blanket wool yardage. It can also be made up in striped blankets like the iconic blanket coats that were popular from the 1930s through 1950s.
- 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.
