Hello!

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good toggle coat pattern?  I saw a coat on ebay that I LOVE but I think i could make something similar with a pattern or by modifying a peacoat pattern (maybe?).  I can't seem to find any good ones--so I thought I'd ask here!  Any help would be appreciated.  thank you.

PS:  This is the ebay coat:

I got a toggle coat with your link. 

But here's a review for an out-of-print pattern, Kwik Sew 2649 .  If you like it, you may be able to find the pattern on eBay or somewhere else.

Here's a 1975 Simplicity pattern that is offered for sale.

There is this Stretch & Sew pattern,

If you really wanted a toggle coat, like the one I saw with your link, take a look at www.PatternReview.com and search for "toggle coat".

Yes, I do want a toggle coat---I guess I didn't think there would be a toggle coat pattern! i thought modifying a peacoat pattern would be best.  Thank you for your response!  i will check out the pattern reviews

You can put toggles on any coat, no modifications at all! I bought a turquoise wool 1940ish coat that I wanted to update, so I just took the buttons off (saved for other projects, of course!) and replaced them with wooden toggles. Very easy...

If you want those chinese knot type things, you can make those yourself with a bit of cord and glue. Making the "hole" ends are even easier than the knot ends (which are replaced by the toggles), so you're in luck!

honestly-- any coat pattern would work, just skip putting in buttons/zippers, and put in toggles instead.
