Text from the magazine:
“Chic and stylish, this is a coat for the extroverts among us!
Wear with attitude for a touch of Marilyn’s elusive glamour.”

From the designer:
This jacket was inspired by the opera jackets of the 1930’s and 1940’s. The ribbing works to shape to the waistline to flatter any body type. The oversized collar can be worn up to fight off a chill or down and over the shoulders for a dramatic effect.

Pattern is written in UK terminology. Digital copies of the magazine can be purchased from
