I'm looking for a basic coat pattern that looks like this:

http://bit.ly/cgqp9Q

I'm not crazy about the back detail, so I'm not looking for that, but I'd like to find a coat pattern in this style. Most of them I've seen are either really fitted with princess seams or boxier, instead of that nice classic A-line.

Has anybody seen anything like this? I'm thinking a heavy solid cotton or linen lined with a cute spring print would be lots of fun, but the way our weather's looking I might not get it made in time to wear before it gets too warm outside. :-)

After looking at the different views, I think the J. Jill coat is actually straight, like the Kwik Sew pattern. If you do want a true A-line, here is the "Penelope" coat from Ottobre Design 5/2009:



The side seams gently flare out, starting under the bust. The back has a yoke similar to the front, and a center back seam from yoke to hem - no pleats or other detailing.

McCalls 5767 is a Palmer/Pletsch classically shaped coat:



It lacks the collar you want, though.

Thank you so much!!!! The Kwik-Sew looks perfect, and I love their patterns. AWESOME!!! I kind of remember seeing the safari-like jacket, but I must have passed right over the other one (or I'm thinking of a different pattern).

Thanks again!

mmmckay, I didn't mean to ignore your post. :-) Thanks to you also! I have wanted to try a Palmer/Pletsch pattern, since I have their book. But you're right, I'd like the collar.

Thanks again to both of you!
