Moderne is a drop shoulder cocoon coat. It has generous pockets and a roomy fit. It is inspired by Art Moderne architecture, a style prominent in the 1930's and 40's that featured aerodynamic curves and clean horizontal lines.


Version 1 has a sporty knit collar and cuffs and its curved seams are accented with piping. It is fully lined and closes with a zipper.

Version 2 features a flat band collar, 3/4 length sleeves with a decorative notch, and gracefully curved side hem vents. It is unlined and closes with buttons.

This collarless coat is designed to play well with your favorite hand knit scarves. Make it up in denim or canvas for a light spring coat or in wool with lining for cozy winter outerwear.


This pattern comes with a Fit Guide that includes alteration instructions. It also includes instructions for sewing knits. Since the cut of Moderne is relaxed, this coat comes in combined sizes (equivalent to M, XL etc). The PDF includes all sizes A/B-O/P (see size information here) and contains both Letter/A4 and Copyshop/A0 format files.
