The Mackinaw Coat is an updated version of the classic Mackinaw Coat style with all the details to make it the perfect on-trend winter coat for your girl or boy. It was designed as a fully lined wool coat with a shawl collar to keep warm during the cold winter months. The dropped armscye and oversized sleeves allow the feel of wearing a warm blanket wrapped around the shoulders, while maintaining the design details of a tailored coat.
*The fully-illustrated tutorial walks you through bagging a lining entirely by machine which is a great sewing skill to learn.
*Another great skill builder is the bound buttonhole tutorial which takes regular buttonholes and elevates them to a more professional finish.
*Sized 12 Months to 12 Years for both boys and girls.
The built-in belt loop detail on the back of the coat serves the purpose of securing the belt in place and adds yet another professional element to the coat, but the shawl collar is where this coat really shines. Whether you choose the dramatic collar or the slimmer regular collar, this is a great place to showcase a fun fabric. Think faux fur, shearling, fleece, contrast colors, let your imagination run wild. It doesn't take much fabric to make a real impact so maybe splurge on a fabric you've been dreaming about using.
There are four views in this pattern: two collars and two lower fronts. See listing photos for additional details.
