Merchant & Mills - The September (Size 6-18)
Overcoat meets duster. An oversized coat for striding through town and country with purpose.
Choose to make either lined or unlined. The September works for a variety of seasons, in oilskin or wool it can be a proper winter coat, or in linen it feels like a casual throw on.
Skill level – intermediate.
All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.
Suggested fabrics – Dry oilskin, oilskin, mid – heavyweight linens, 7 – 12oz denim, wool, corduroy, cotton twills or canvas. A heavier weight cloth will result in a more structured coat. For the lining, we’d suggest using Barrier Lining if you are using oilskin. You could also use cotton voile, lightweight linen, cotton poplin, hemp/cotton, lightweight wools or a traditional slip lining.
You will need:
1 x Matching thread
5 x 2cm/3/4″ buttons
Optional (recommended for most fabrics) 1.3M/1.5YD interfacing.
A note on sizing:
The September has an oversized fit, always consult the finished measurements table to see how much ease you’d like in your coat. For example, Elwen in the video is wearing a size 10 but could wear 8-14 depending on the fit she wanted.
