Designed for bodies and souls, regardless of gender. The construction is based on a study of a 50's Balenciaga coat. The pattern is a one-size to fit most bodies. The sleeve length is intended to be 3/4 on taller persons. Please see the size guide for further info.
As a part of our belief in transparency Atacac would like to share the pattern and 3D-model for this garment. For this we ask, but do not demand, a small contribution of €10 to support us with our work of producing new sharewear patterns. Free download is possible starting May20th.
Print the pattern on a large scale plotter or, when using a normal printer, use the tile function and print the pattern in small pieces which you tape together.
When downloading you will get 4 different files: a PNG illustrating the garment, a PDF pattern ready for print, a DXF that can be imported into any CAD/CAM software and a ZPrj with the pattern assembled in 3D. The ZPrj file can be viewed and altered in CLO3D.
