1930s Coat & Jacket Sewing Patterns
1930s fashion sewing patterns for coats embraced the Art Deco age with long, tailored, modest winter coats. Faux fur, wool, velvet, and tweed added. Meanwhile, bright colors — blue, green, yellow, burgundy, and tan — kept winter spirits high. Thankfully, the classic 1930s long coat is making a comeback. Even the short 30s jacket, a sporty American style, is starting to gain fashion followers in the UK. Wrap coats with overlapping panels and a tie belt lost popularity in the 1930s. The few that survived could either be made in a sport style or a dressy style. Some versions used a wide slide buckle belt instead of the traditional tie. They started to come back in fashion in the last year or two of the thirties. Other styles popular in the era were the Swing coat, the Swagger coat – with the inverted pleat back gave it plenty of volume and “swing” while the front lacked buttons or belts. A single button at the neck was all it needed to stay in place.
