Winter coat pattern by Sindeon Winter coat pattern by Sindeon
I tried to draw a pattern for my cloak - I usually sew without any patterns. I used 1,5 m x 3,6 m textile. If you have any questions just ask in the comments

I absolutely love this coat and I want to make it but I've never made a coat from a pattern like this. Any tips on how to start/measure/etc?

Well my best tip would be the following:
1. find your favorite coat that fits you well
2. try to draw my pattern on tracing paper using your good fitting coat as base
3. get the cheapest material you can (leftover bedsheet also works) and try to assemble it. Try it on, use pins to correct where it does not fit. Sometimes I even make 2 pre-versions when trying something new. When it fits as you want, cut it apart, and use it for the real textile as pattern. This way you can learn for very cheap :D

Why there isn't a part numbered VI (6)? The numbers skip from V (5) to VII (7).

Other than that, this is great and it shows clearly how everything fits together. I tried sewing before but I always had problems to put together all the pieces and to see how they fitted.

Thanks! I think this is what deviantart is for, right? To share your ideas, and try to help others creating what they want. Actually I am amazed my little coat pattern is liked by soooo many users, it makes me feel that I did not post it just into the air for nothing. But still waiting for someone to show me his/hers! So please, be the first :)

This might seem stupid but how does one put together just the hood and the hood back?
Reply
:iconsindeon:
Sindeon Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2015
There are 3 shoulder pieces of the hood: one back and two fronts. It is open in the front, so you just sew one front piece to one side of the back, and the other front piece to the other side of the back. In the front, it closes with buttons. 
I hope I answered your question but if you just google "medieval hood" you can see lots of examples and patterns. My hood is the same, the only difference being that the back part is long.

I really loooooove your coat!!!!! I have seen the "official" and yes it's great but too expansive for me ... and "tadaaa" i found your pattern :) Thank youuuuu!
I have to do one now ^^

The wool material you use is a 100% wool? The wool don't scratch you?

(sorry for my english...)

You are welcome, I felt the same when looking around :D
I dont really know, I just went to the fabric store and found something cool :) It was labeled as 100% wool, but its not itchy at all.

This is so wonderful and just what I needed. I sew without patterns too, but I always check to see what the pattern should look like so I know how to cut textile. I don't really understand this piece for sleeves, so I guess I'll just make regular sleeves instead. Thank you very much. :3

This was the first pattern I drew so it might be a little weird :) The reason for the arms is the following: the sewing is on both sides of the arms, not just on the bottom, so I can spare some material, and the wrist-curve is also done so that I dont lose any textile: the bottom one 'fits' into the top one when layed out. Oh I am even worse describing it than drawing it :D

why you don't make a remake from this pattern so, a little bit like this? :
sindeon.deviantart.com/art/Sim…

Now a question:
assumed, if i print the pattern in real size (1,5x 3).
Then I have it?
the measurement are nearly exactly like the coat on the picture?

(Sorry for my grammar errors)

This was the first ever pattern I made. I never use patterns for sewing - I make a mock-up version (real size) from tracing paper, try it on, modify as necessary and just start sewing. 

I only made this because some people here on deviantart asked for it. I made a quick sketch by hand and scanned-colored it. Since it was well received, I decided to go on with this tradidion and try to post patterns. 


I made these in AutoCAD (well, I am an architect not a fashion designer, what else to except? :)), so those are real sizes that you could print. I could even make a file (like a .pdf or something) 1:1 scale.  

However this old one (my coat) was not, its just a sketch so I would not print it - it is not accurate enough. I was not planning on re-doing this, because I have some new stuff and I rather spend time on new :)

*After looking at it for a while trying to figure out how to make the hood detachable*

...Wait, is the hood like a mantle-type thing, where it's a whole separate layer? That would make a lot more sense than what I was thinking. If so, that is ingenious and completely solves my "hood or no hood" problems I have with coats...

This is absolutely gorgeous, and it looks fantastic made in wool! I really must make one, but I have no wool laying around... Perhaps a synthetic will work...

Sindeon Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2013
Thanks! Yep, the hood is a totally separate piece, sometimes when its not that cold and not snowing, I even leave it home. I did not take a picture with only the hood because it would look silly :) 

Maybe look at the cloak where I get the idea from, it shows better there: 

The 'official' one is much nicer, but I did not have 800$ for a coat, and the wool material for this was about 60$. I spent about two days doing it, but it was more than worth it.

Ooh, that *is* super-pretty! Although I think yours looks a little more practical/easier to move in. But ah ha ha yeah, $800 is kind of expensive. Though after making stuff to sell, and also doing as much of the fabric making/dyeing process as I can, I can see why really nice things are expensive! :P

Dang, I really need some wool. The wool at my local Jo-Ann store sucks >.< I'll be ordering some nice wool online when I can. In the meantime, I may make this out of a different fabric, both as a mock-up and as a lighter jacket whilst I wait for my things to sell so I can have a wool one :)

I really think that coat is worth that money, its just that I dont have that much :D However I love browsing armstreet, they have great stuff, very inspirative. This is my new love, I just have to figure out a character that would wear this: armstreet.com/store/clothes/dr…

I guess I am lucky here in Hungary: there is a great textile store, right across the street where I live, and they sell this wool material for 3.000 HUF (about 15$) per meter. I already bought some black ones for another coat, but that will be a proper winter coat not fantasy stlye :)

Oh, that coat is totally worth it! But dang that's a lot of money, and I'd be so afraid of getting it dirty!

And OHMYGOODNESS that dress is amazing. I really, really love that!

Haha yes, I do hear that over in your corner of the world wool fabric is much easier to come by :P I went to my fabric store three towns away, and their wool fabric is something like $30/yd, only 3 colours, and not very good quality fabric >.<

Ooh, I can't wait to see your new coat :D

I think I'm going to start work on a winter cloak soon, I hardly wear coats but I love shawls, blankets, and my BF's cloak (but it is way, WAY too big for me, LOL).

i have a question. the top arm part and the bottom arm part do you cut them out like it is in the pic or do you cut them separate????

:iconsindeon:
Sindeon Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013
No, its separated, but laying it out on the fabric like this helps you spare with the textile.
