I am looking for a Balenciaga one seam coat pattern originally published in Sewing Update oct/nov 1994. Any information of this would be helpful.

tailorblue- HERE is a link to a discussion about this pattern. I believe the eighth post down gives a link to request a Sew News article about the jacket. Apparently the article gives directions for drafting your own pattern and if you follow the discussion on down, there is at least one lady who made the jacket. Hope this helps!

This site is for a Bog Coat Pattern. It seems pretty straight forward. I think I'll try one with my latest Marcy Tilton linen.

There are a couple of reviews of bog coats, using that Threads article as the starting point.

I don't know anything about the Balenciaga coat, but I know the standard bog coat style can work pretty well, not just for coats and jackets, but for bathrobes and pool coverups. It is sparing with the fabric too; if this style were invented today, instead of thousands of years ago, it would be called zero-waste design.

From Izzie's post I found this link with directions. Just scroll down a bit and there will be directions on how to make a pattern,
