Hey All! I'm looking for a pattern for a long duster with no collar and no buttons. Chicos has the one I'd love to make in their current catalog for $129.00. I'd love to make my own! I'm having trouble finding such a simple pattern and would love any suggestions!

Thanks!

Duster seems to be a regional word... The only other state I've lived in has been Arizona, and down there it means a long coat, usually made of leather. Like the ones used in "The Matrix" only more cowboy-ish.

Look at Butterick 5473.

My mother-in-law called the garment she put over her Sunday clothes to make dinner a "duster." It snapped and was made of cotton, and in other regions of the U.s. would be called a house coat.

Is this what you were thinking?

LOL, I must confess I alternately pictured a housecoat vs a cowboy coat.

How about Vogue 8819?

Here's Chico's idea of a duster. It seems to be a longish cardigan.

But
wikipedia shows it as a long overcoat designed to protect the clothing of horsemen. Later on, it apparently came to refer to the overcoats of both men and women who rode in open automobiles.

I had a denim duster back in high school, in the 80's and it was long--came down to my knees, maybe a little bit longer. So I was trying to think of longer jacket patterns until I saw the Chico's dusters.

The Chico's version seem likes it could be adapted from a basic knit cardigan pattern, lenthened. Or a basic T or tunic pattern, redrafting the front. i bought something similar at Target last year, the front edges and beckline are finished with a narrow band.

Seems like a long cardigan with no closures. It looks better over a shirt than a tee in my opinion. Pity that, I have not worn a shirt in years. Hate the ironing.

Thanks Everyone! I just love the one in Chicos. I did purchase Butterick 5473 but love the way the Vogue 8819 has no collar - just simple and easy to wear over a shirt! Thank you all again for your input! I've purchased the fabric and will post my creation when done!

Thank you Mary - I love this one - with much length added :)....I'm going to get this pattern and may use it instead of the Butterick 5473. Thank you so much!
