Cashmerette Club: Meet the Savin Coat, the Club pattern for November!

Sew an elegant coat for curves with the Savin Coat, the Club pattern for November! Join Cashmerette Club for as little as $9 USD to get this pattern.

If you’re curvy, it can be so hard to find a coat that fits you well, let alone reflects your personality. For a coat to close over your bust, waist, and hips, you have to opt for a larger size that likely only comes in black (or gray, if you’re lucky). But when you sew your own outerwear, you can make a stylish, well-fitting coat that will brighten up even the gloomiest of wintery days.

When we were brainstorming for our first true coat pattern, we had loads of styles we loved—so we decided to let you choose! We asked Club members to vote for their favorite coat design, and voila: the Savin Coat was born.

Featuring a fitted princess seam bodice and two skirt options, this classic coat will keep you stylish and warm all winter long—and with sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H, you’ll get a fabulous fit right away. Get this fully lined coat pattern with all the bells and whistles for just $9 USD when you join the Club in November—that’s an incredible value!
