With its modern swing shape and length that hits mid-hip, the Cortland is an update on the classic trench. Raglan sleeves give you plenty of movement and room for layering while the storm flaps and generous collar keep out inclement weather. The Cortland also features a double-breasted front closure and roomy welt pockets. All seams are bound, which not only gives your coat a professional finish, but also helps it stand up to wear and tear.

Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, welt pockets, Hong Kong seam finishing, topstitching, sewing a collar & collar stand, inserting buttonholes, and hand sewing.

Difficulty: Intermediate

Mia is wearing a size 8 Cortland & Tiffany is wearing a size 20 Cortland. 

Suggested Fabrics:

Main Fabric: Lightweight coating or medium weight fabrics such as cotton or tencel twill, gabardine, or linen. Make sure your fabric has drape to allow the swing shape of the coat to hang properly. We recommend fabric weights between 5 – 8 oz.

Pocket Lining Fabric: lightweight cotton fabrics such as chambray, lawn, or pocketing.

Fusible Interfacing: woven or tricot interfacing in a similar, or slightly lighter, weight as your main fabric.

Notions: Thread, 6 — 1" buttons, 12 yds pre-made 1/4" double fold bias tape if binding seam allowances

Bob woven pants Had to redraft

The quality of the paper was excellent.
I don't know about the smaller sizes, but the larger ones were not like the picture. They ballooned out like crazy from the top and didn't seem drafted for the proportion changes that come with larger size. I could have put on my wig and nose, hopped on a unicycle and had a day under the big top.
Lucky I did a test fit with calico.

I had to do a tiny full derrière adjustment as the back crotch length was just a little shy.

I took huge amounts out of the top and top leg to bring them back to the gentle curve in the picture that seems like it should curve out most in the mid and lower leg area. I also had to redraft the bottom leg and ankle somewhat - it was way too wide.

It ended up being good, but the amount of work required to get them right was prodigious. I could have just drafted them from scratch to be honest, with the amount of work. I'm reluctant to try other larger sizes patterns from here now, not for me!
