We love a duster coat! This one is so stylish and such a great garment to throw over the top of just about anything!
The versatile Lichen Duster sewing pattern from Sew Liberated can be worn as a lightweight coat, wrap dress or robe – a true capsule wardrobe workhorse! Its shawl collar, princess seams, one-of-a-kind pockets, four skirt gores and hand-stitched facings make it a beautiful heirloom piece.
Style it over dresses and jumpsuits, or jeans and tees. Use your own belt or wrap the included fabric belt around your waist, tucking in the ends for a chic morning-to-evening dress. The Lichen can be made with a sweeping high-low hem or a straight hem.
Depending on the fabric you choose, this sewing pattern can be worn in cold or warm weather. It’s unlined, constructed with front and back facings of the same fabric and recommended for mid-weight linen or yarn-dyed cotton for all-season wear. More advanced sewists can branch out and choose mid-weight wool or even silk or silk velvet.
The pattern includes sizes 0-30, and is designed for intermediate sewers. The pattern will help you practice many skills, including shawl collar construction, princess seams, French seams, facings, and hand finishing.
