Bias Tier Coat

Bias Tier Coat

42.00

The Bias Tier Coat is cut on the straight grain but worn on the bias, so there is subtle shaping to the body without the visual distraction of  fitting darts of other seaming.  The straight grain cut also allows for easier and more controlled stitching. The design has kimono sleeves, a standing collar and is an ideal pattern for directional or art-dyed fabrics with decorative trim inserted at each seam.  The coat would be great in woven wool coating, medium-heavy weight silks, cottons or some synthetics.  The pattern is  best done in a fabric with directional characteristics such as stripes, ribs, patterns or nap -- for instance, corduroy would be very interesting -- but it is not appropriate for knits or stretch fabrics. It may also be done as a jacket with fewer sections or even as a dress in softer fabrics.  The pattern is graded in small (6-8), medium (10-14) and large (16-18) but the bias and choice of fabric will allow it to be size flexible.  Lining pattern included.

This pattern requires intermediate to advanced sewing skills -- not for beginners.
