Circa 1934 Coat Pattern- Bust 36
This coat pattern from 1934 has princess seams, raglan sleeves, and a lovely large collar. It fastens with one button at the waist. This coat can be made in one fabric or made in two with a contrast fabric or fur collar. We suggest using faux fur.
This pattern’s original instructions are very minimal, which is true to the period. These instructions tell how to put the basic coat together. We have added basic tips and watchpoints for working with this pattern. If you wish to do more detailed tailoring, we suggest using a tailoring book in addition to these instructions.

- 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 printed on sturdy bond paper instead of tissue and 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.
