Pattern Give-away: Vintage Vogue Coat Pattern

I've been thinking about sewing a winter coat (again). I found a new pattern which is on its way so I thought that these pattern need to find a good home. 

This Sunday's pattern give-away is for a gorgeous original 1953 design, Vogue 1083, my original choice for a winter coat. Both patterns are unopened and uncut. One is for size AA which includes sizes 6, 8, 10, 12 and the other is for EE which includes sizes 14, 16, 18, 20.    

I will draw two winners for each size combination. Here's the drill, 
  • Promise not to sell them.  
  • Provide a good home where they will be cherished, shared and made into fabulous garments.  
  • Please leave a message below stating which combination size you would like and with a way that I can reach you if you win. 
  • I will draw for these patterns on Wednesday, August 27th.  
  • This pattern give-away is open to everyone, I will ship internationally.  
Pattern details, 
Misses' Coat:  Lined and interlined, flared, loose-fitting coat , below mid-calf length has shaped collar, dropped shoulders, side seam pockets and back yoke.  Wide bracelet length sleeves may be worn turned up to form deep cuffs.  A:  no closures.  B:  Button and bound buttonholes.  A, B:  wide topstitching.  
Good luck and happy sewing!


  1. Graca,
    I would love a chance to win the Vogue 1083 pattern in size EE. My daughter, who is 23 loves vintage as much as I do and with this pattern, I can sew us both a coat that we will love. Thank you for having this give-a-way! I can be reached by email, I am looking forward to seeing your finished coat! Have a great day!

  2. Lovely pattern! Please put me in the drawing for the size EE pattern. I have cashmere material in my stash just waiting for this pattern! Thanks!

  3. I would give this pattern a wonderful home. Please add me to the drawing for the size AA. Thank you.

  4. Oh, I have eyed his pattern! My mother had a reversible coat just like this, one side black velvet, the other an off white wool/cashmere basket weave. I have the buttons! AA, fingers crossed!

  5. Those are lovely coats, and you are a gem to offer so many giveaways. Don't enter my name as I have a large collection of coat patterns already. I just wanted to say "Thanks" for your generosity.

  6. Beautiful patterns, and the EE one would find a loving home with me :) I've recently lost 30lbs in weight (more to go, I hope) and this autumn I will be building my wardrobe all over again with smaller clothes. Exciting time!!

    Thank-you for being so kind and thinking of us!

  7. Love the vintage coat pattern, but I already have a winter coat pattern to try this year. Just want to say you are very sweet to do all these pattern give a ways.

    God bless.

  8. I'd love my name to be drawn for AAA. This is a pattern I have been thinking about. Thanks for the opportunity Graca! I can be reached through our RTW Fasters' group as Kathleen Annette. Thanks!

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
