Riga coat

Borealis

Sewing pattern for an oversize coat with low, wide armholes. It is belted at the waist (three beltloops). The front opening slightly flares out from the waist to the neck to create a slight décolleté. The coat also has two large patch pockets at the front and a small high collar. It is lined and its length goes down to the knee. There is no way to close it other than the belt (given in the pattern).
