original product information by Charm Patterns by Gertie.

Meet the Princess Coat! Princess coats from the ’50s are some of the most breathtaking examples of vintage glamour. These dramatic tailored coats had full skirts, nipped waists, beautiful shawl collars, and dazzling oversized sleeves. Made in lush wools and velvets with a range of striking trims and custom-made buttons, the sight of a mid-century princess coat is enchanting to anyone who comes across one. Lilli Ann was the premiere fashion label behind these coats and they are highly collectible today—with sky-high price tags. The good news is that princess coats are both fun and incredibly satisfying to make for yourself, so you don’t have to wait for the perfect vintage piece to come along in your size. Armed with a little tailoring knowledge (which I will guide you through), it’s not out of reach to make this style for yourself. The best part is that you can fit our Princess Coat pattern to your own unique figure, making it a truly custom-fit, bespoke piece of clothing. Our range of sizes 2–20 (plus cup sizes in A–H) make this style truly accessible to anyone with a sewing machine and a little gumption.

Of course, here at Charm Patterns we specialize in pairing vintage glamour with enough options and information to satisfy modern home sewists. That’s why we have options for both jackets and coats in this pattern, with a range of interchangeable sleeves (both slim and tailored or full and flamboyant), collar variations, and even a flared peplum (to get that dramatic Lilli Ann suit silhouette!). Our famous “Choose Your Own Adventure” instructions let you be the mistress of your own sewing destiny by guiding you through the process for your unique design choices.

 

  • Coat sizes 2-20, A-H cup sizes (Bust sizes 30.5″ to 52″)
  • Each pattern includes a fully illustrated booklet with design ideas, fitting advice, and multiple finishing options
  • Beautifully illustrated and full of vintage charm
