Concord Top-Down Swing Coat #101
Concord, Massachusetts is a classic New England town, with lovely old architecture and impressive history. Like Concord, this swing coat is a classic that you will return to over and over again. It was designed with a bit of extra ease so you can wear it over layers, and its back gusset and generous body shaping give it a wonderful swing shape.
This is a top-down, set-in sleeve pattern, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve cap (instructions on how to work short rows are included). There are also tips on how to customize your fit.
