The Jessie Coatigan is a Confident Beginner sewing pattern.
We recommend medium to heavy weight woven or knit fabrics with a good drape, such as melton wool, boiled wool and boucle. We suggest avoiding “crisper” knits such as French Terry. Knits with wool content work really well, thanks to the added drape and weight.
Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Jessie Coatigan sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 6-30. The pattern is split into two different blocks: sizes 6-20 (B Cup), and sizes 18-30 (D Cup). See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
Jessie is designed to be slightly oversized so that you can wear a thick jumper underneath, or wear it as a maternity cover-up. If you’re not planning to wear it over bulky layers, you may want to size down. In these images, Lisa (size 8/10 in our patterns) is wearing a size 10 and Chantelle (usually size 24) is wearing a size 20 with a 3 inch FBA (full bust adjustment).

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
