Make it with our Indygo Junction sewing pattern and Dritz sew-on toggles.
Wow. This is a fantastic look – and so very versatile. Whether you wear it paired with jeans to run errands, or over a party dress, it’s got style written all over it. The sewing pattern is our Indygo Junction Sophia swing coat; it’s finished with Dritz sew-on toggle closures.
Yes, you can easily make this coat.
Elegant and timeless. It comes together quickly because it doesn’t have a liner. Our fashion blogger, Laura, chose it for this month’s sewing project because of its classic and vintage-inspired look. Bottom line: you need one.
Gather your supplies.
The key ingredients to make this coat are the Dritz sew-on toggles, the Indygo Junction swing coat pattern and 3 yards of fabric. Laura chose camel wool for her take on this coat, which we think is A++.
Put together fabric and pattern pieces.

Follow the sewing pattern instructions to construct the coat.
Pin toggles in place.
You’ve got some flexibility regarding where you place the toggles – so play with them, and then pin them in place when you’ve decided exactly where you’d like them to go.
Sew the toggles on.
You can sew the toggles on by hand or using your sewing machine. Laura prefers the sewing machine and recommends either jeans or button thread, which is thicker than all-purpose thread and adds nice contrast to the coat.
Love the look.

There are many specialty closures in the Dritz line – each lending a professional finish to your garment sewing.
