Elsa and Elliot Coat
Elsa & Elliot is a fully lined coat in two variants: A) a straight coat, and B) a coat with a pleated peplum. Choose your fabrics based on the season. The coat’s shell (main fabric) can be sewn in for example wool, fleece, softshell or rainwear fabric and be lined with light-weight shiny fabrics such as satin. Or heavier, warm fabrics such as teddy or fleece.
You can choose to sew the coat without a collar, or with a hood*, removable hood, Peter Pan collar, classic flat collar or just a neckline cuff.
Variant A can be sewn with patch pockets, with or without a flap. Elsa & Elliot is a wonderful coat for both boys and girls, and a great pattern for sewing different kinds of coats for different seasons.
