How a Duffle Coat Looks Like

Would you like to know how a duffle coat may look like? I don’t mean the exterior, I would like to show you how the duffle coat begins. So, let me open my Valentina pattern file and show you.

A bit messy, isn’t it?

Actually this is just a basic pattern for outerwear and I can manipulate it at any way I want.

For example, this will be a back pattern piece
And this one will become a storm flap
Here is the front pattern piece
In Details Mode you can see a place for the patch pocket. I may add any detail I want, even make notches for buttons and holes, and will actually do this after the fitting
And here is the front storm flap
And this is the cut-off flare
The hood…
And the hood gusset
Upper part of the sleeve
And the lower one
And this is how that all looks like in the Details mode

What is good about Valentina, it’s that it took me very little time to create this wonderful pattern. To be honest, I’ve spent much more time writing this post than drawing it.
