Patterns - Folkwear #137 Australian Drover's Coat.
Folkwear #137 Australian Drover's Coat pattern. Created for the horsemen who rode the rugged Outback at the turn of the 10th century, this dashing coat is still popular today. It has many practical features for all-weather riding (horses or bicycles!), or it can be stripped down to a very-easy-to-make duster for men or women. The original version, View B, is ready for the range with wrist tabs, elbow patches, and a detachable shoulder cape. Leg tabs and the long fantail vent in center back cleverly wrap around to form a type of legging for added body and saddle protection whole riding! The front opening is covered with a rectangular flap for wind and rain protection, and the partial lining adds warmth. The basic duster shape and essential details alone comprise View A, an over-everything coat. The raglan sleeves with wrist tabs, rectangular collar, collar tabs and patch/flap pockets add just enough style to this unlined duster, which can be made in a few hours. Both roomy coats fasten with heavy-duty gripper snaps and van be made in a variety of fabrics, waterproof or not. Information about waterproofing fabrics for these garments and a knitting pattern for a sturdy turtleneck sweater are included.
