This is from the first half of the 1940’s, and would be suitable for WWII impressions. Hope you like it!

For my sample, I made the pattern out of a lovely plaid wool I have had for several years.  Instead of cutting the pocket on the straight of grain, as the pattern suggested, I cut it on the bias.  If you also want to make it in a plaid with bias pockets, I recommend purchasing more than the fabric given on the yardage chart.

Why “Veronica”, you may ask?  Because this style of coat reminds me so much of Veronica Lake- especially in movies such as Sullivan’s Travels.  Of course, the pattern is not in any way affiliated with Veronica Lake or the movie, but since I grew up with old movies I thought it would be fun to name this one in honor of her.

Hope you love it!  Sewing pattern tutorials for this pattern will be coming up soon. I wanted to help with the tricky bits like the pockets and making the shoulder pads from scratch.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas, if I don’t check in before then!
