Staff Made — Make by TFS Poppy Coat
Sep 14 2021

The Poppy Coat pattern release was highly anticipated by our TFS team, as coat patterns can be tricky to find, especially those that incorporate a modern silhouette and style but are classic and versatile enough to wear with any garment! We think the Poppy Coat strikes that balance without being too much of a daunting project, as we know some coat projects may seem challenging. Keep reading to see what adaptions some of our team have made to their Poppy Coats, what they're sewn in, and how they've styled them!

Poppy Spec

The Poppy Coat is a modern oversized coat with an enveloping silhouette and exaggerated detailing, the perfect balance of practicality and style! This pattern is fully lined with a single front button closure, playful curved collar and notch lapel, long sleeves and generous front welt pockets. Two views provide alternative length options, with View A offered in full length and View B in mid length. Body and sleeve hem lengths can be easily adjusted using the indication lines provided on the pattern.

Poppy would make the perfect outerwear addition to any sewists wardrobe and is a garment designed to last you a lifetime! With generous ease throughout the body, Poppy is ideal for layering up over sweaters and jackets to shield you from the elements in cool weather. Pair Poppy up with our Make by TFS Cass Pant and Fog Tee, or throw over an Ivy or Bloom Dress.

This downloadable PDF pattern is supplied as an A4/US letter print-at-home version and an A0 copyshop version with an instruction booklet included.
