Can’t believe that it has already been more than a year since I published my last pattern. My life offline as well as a new job have limited my time this year. I actually made this leopard coatigan at the end of last year for a blogger meet-up in Hamburg because you need make something new for such an event after all. 😉 You might wonder what a coatigan actually is. As the name already suggests it is a mixture between a coat and a cardigan. A coatigan is usually unlined but consists of warming material so that it can be worn as a coat in the transitional period and as a cardigan during winter time. For my coatigan I used a thick felted knit fabric from Maybachufer market. This pattern actually works for thick knit materials and coat fabrics that are not too heavy. I can also imagine it being made from sweat fabrics.

I’m especially fond of the hidden pockets in the front as they keep my hands nice and warm. 🙂 As the coatigan is unlined and has press buttons as closure it can be sewn rather quickly and is also suitable for intermediate beginners. I will actually post step-by-step instructions here next week. In the mean time, I have already used this pattern for a solid grey version and as I’m really loving this shape, I want to share this pattern with you. Since it is almost christmas, I will be giving this pattern away as a free download until January 5, 2020 and afterwards in my Etsy shop. By the way, this pattern was named after the small town Alette in the French department Pas-de-Calais. I hope you like this pattern and please use the hashtags #alettecoatigan & #sewionistapatterns and tag @sewionista to share your makes with us. Happy sewing!
