The Clare Coat is a chic cool-weather staple. Featuring raglan sleeves and an unstructured A-line silhouette, Clare is a great introduction to the joys of coat making.

View A hits at mid-thigh, with a face-framing collar, princess seams, an exposed asymmetrical zipper and welt pockets. View B has a more minimalist vibe; a dramatic funnel collar, double-breasted, ends at the hip with inseam pockets and full-length sleeves.

Easy pattern to follow

This pattern has really good instructions. The on line sewalong is really useful and helps with fiddly bits. The only thing I would say is measure the arm length. I have long arms and could have done with not turning up the sleeve hem as much as the instructions say. Apart from that, it makes up a treat.

My dream coat

This is a really great pattern, like all closet core patterns. The clare coat is so unique and stylish and I get so many compliments whenever I wear it. I made mine out of quilted cotton twill rather than wool like must people do. If you are on the fence about size, I suggest sizing up to the bigger one. My coat is a teeny bit snug in the shoulders and arms and I wish I'd chosen the bigger size. I adore the funnel collar- it's perfect to snuggle into on chilly days. Overall a great sewing experience and wonderful pattern.

I love my Clare coat! I sewed up view B. It was fairly easy to sew for a coat pattern. The sew along posts were great and really helped with the few minor fitting issues I had.

Clare Coat view B

This was a really enjoyable project and my very first coat. Made size 14 without mods but I lengthen the coat by 4 inches. I have also added interlining for warmth and made bound buttonhole (first for me). Sew along was very detailed and easy to follow. Love it, thank you Clare😊

Have my size traced and to cut out but it will a few weeks before that happens. Project (coat) will need to be done by Nov. 1.
