You would think that there would be plenty of classic pea coat patterns out there, but if so I'm missing them. I have a wool herringbone fabric and think it would make a good peacoat. Something like this:



I found a couple old threads asking this same question. There was one New Look pattern that could be a starting point, although it is definitely not a classic pea coat. Everything else mentioned were either magazine patterns (which won't do me much good since I don't have those issues) or out of print.

Any that you know about?

Thank you.

You didn't say whether you wanted a mens or women's pattern, but I found this classic pea coat online pattern a while back, however it is a mens design.

Classic Mens Pea Coat

This is StyleArc, and I know that the postage can be awkward for US and UK customers.

I have a couple in my stash, but again most of them are OOP's.

Still current is Simplicity 2508 or the short version of Onion 1046


My OOP suggestion is Kwik Sew 3623

I'm interested in a woman's pattern (although the men's pattern linked is very nice.

The Onion pattern is PERFECT, exactly a classic pea-coat style. (That Simplicity is pretty good also; surprised I missed that one!)

Thank you all very much for your responses. I really appreciate it. And given that I found two older (& with unavailable patterns) 'looking for a pea coat' threads, I bet others will also appreciate it.

Simplicity 2311
The above could be adapted, using a mix of the different views. I made this as the single-breasted coat and it's a really good, amazingly easy pattern. For a pea coat you'd need to move the pockets to the front princess seam instead of the side seam.

Oh yes, view B of 2311 is basically a long classic peacoat!

Now really, I looked EVERYWHERE for a pattern. I don't know how you people do it. I swear patterns hide when they know you are looking for them.

If you're open to downloading patterns, Lekala has several coat options that could be shortened to peacoat length.

One hard-to-find detail: Real Navy-issue pea coats have sensible, besom-type handwarmer pockets, as shown in this article (and doesn't Redford look the way men should look in this garment?). One of the few patterns with anything like this feature is OOP Kwik Sew 2649, which has been very favorably reviewed here at pr.

It should be easy to incorporate handwarmer pockets into the seams that lovely Onion pattern, though.

Yeah, lots of good suggestions for patterns. But, if we get to vote, I vote for Robert Redford!!!
