Ladies' Travelling Ulster (Overcoat), circa 1910


No Illustration Available


"Heavy travelling ulsters made in blanket or fleece cloth with heavy collar and loose poncho sleeves are now in demand, and we give a typical shape which can easily be worked out from the diagram."

Diagram 1 - The Body

"When measuring for these coats, take the sleeve from neck point over shoulder bond to cuff, while the arm is resting at the side."

Diagram 2 - The Sleeve

"To cut the sleeve lay the body pattern together at the shoulders and mark B to D, the length. Sweep from A, at 1 inch out and mark 4 and 5 as shown, also mark the size of cuff as desired. Sweep from side seams 4 and 6 as shown."

Diagrams 3 & 4 - Collars

"Diagram 3 shows the cutting of a wide roll collar, D to E being made the difference between the stand and fall. Diagram 4 is the roll square back type indicating the grown on stand as shaded marks and the general outline, which, after closing back and front parts, may be marked to taste. A vee may be put in, as K, to provide a dart for the bust."
