The September

The September is an overcoat meets duster. An oversized coat for striding through town and country with purpose.

Choose to make either lined or unlined. The September works for a variety of seasons, in oilskin or wool it can be a proper winter coat, or in linen it feels like a casual throw on.

This is a multi-size Paper pattern, sizes UK 6 – 18.

Skill level – intermediate.

All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.

Suggested fabrics – Dry oilskin, oilskin, mid – heavyweight linens, 7 – 12oz denim, wool corduroy, cotton twills or canvas. A heavier weight cloth will result in a more structured coat. For the lining, we’d suggest using Barrier Lining if you are using oilskin. You could also use cotton voile, lightweight linen, cotton poplin, hemp/cotton, lightweight wools or a traditional slip lining.


You will need:

1 x Matching thread

5 x 2cm/3/4″ buttons

Optional (recommended for most fabrics) 1.3M/1.5YD interfacing.

A note on sizing:

The September has an oversized fit, always consult the finished measurements table to see how much ease you’d like in your coat. For example, Elwen in the video is wearing a size 10 but could wear 8-14 depending on the fit she wanted.
