An essential coat for boys and girls to play in.

The word “awhi” (pronounced “ah-fee”) means “hug” in the Māori language. When you create this coat it will be like a warm cuddle for your child.

With this sewing pattern and tutorial you will be able to create a fully lined coat with either a pointed or curved collar, or gusset style hood.

Description

The Awhi Coat is the perfect layer of warmth and style for your child, created for the comfort and fit of boys and girls.

The fit of the Awhi Coat allows for extra layers underneath and the cross over front means extra warmth for chests and tummies.

It comes with a range of hood, collar and pocket options, you can personalise your coat to make it your own.

The tutorial guides you through a button loop closure (which means no button holes!) but the more experienced sewer can easily add their own preferred fastenings without any adjustment to the pattern.

Children will love having a coat with inseam pockets to store their treasures in and the hood is roomy and can keep the child protected from the elements while they play.

The Awhi Coat has a professional finish with clean design lines that are simple and beautiful.

The pattern and tutorial is suitable for an ambitious beginner or sewer of all experience levels. You will love the detailed tutorial that will guide you through creating this coat, including an exclusive video tutorial for creating the sleeves.

Try up-cycling an old woollen blanket for extra warmth this winter!

Sewing Level:

The Awhi Coat has been designed with ambitious beginners in mind. The tutorial is detailed with full colour photos and includes an exclusive video tutorial on turning the lined sleeves.

You’ll love the look of the front facing for the lining and the instructions for the pockets are detailed in each step. If sewing a coat makes you feel nervous, give it a go and enjoy your finished results!

The more advanced will appreciate the finishing touches, the turning of the sleeves method and the versatility of The Awhi Coat.

Fabric Suggestions:

This coat has been designed for winter and cold weather wear. For the outer look for heavy weight fabrics including wool, melton cloth, upcycled blankets etc.

For the lining think light weight fabrics like cotton, poly cotton, voile etc.

Fit and Ease of the Awhi Coat:

The Awhi Coat has been designed for winter wear. It has a lot of ease through the chest allowing for tops or sweaters to be worn underneath.

The sleeves have been designed to roll up and a sleeve adjustment guide has been included on the pattern piece for a custom length sleeve.

When you are choosing what size to create, measure around the chest (around the body just under the underarms). Use the chest measurement to determine what size your child is.

This pattern has been created using Standard American Measurements and might seem different to what you usually buy in stores. Therefore, use the size the chart says you are to fit the chest, and if required, lengthen or shorten the pattern as needed. More detailed size and finished measurement charts are included within the pattern.

    Another classic but stylish Below the Kowhai pattern. I really wish my kids were 8 years younger so I would have many more years of creating with these patterns. I used this pattern to make a winter coat for my 12 yr old. I love the options and adaptations that are available. He is super skinny *(a size 8) but growing like a weed so I added length to it. He wanted a hood and lots of buttons. To add some interest I used the lining fabric on the outside of hood gusset and the outside fabric on inside. My boy describes it as a Narnia coat and is hoping for some snow so he can wear it(he’ll be waiting a while as its spring here. I’m planning to make one for a friends boy’s 2nd birthday with some fabric in my stash.

    A fabulously written coat pattern with a timeless shape that will last forever. A simple but satisfying sew where I definitely learnt some new techniques. I’ve already made 3 and my big kids can not wait for theres. Absolutely worth the sew and wait for the magical ‘turning in’ part. It’s amazing and wonderful. It felt so good 🙂

    A very straight forward coat with simple lines and classic pea coat styling. The facing on the lining is a very nice touch that helps set this coat apart from others, leaving you feeling like you sewed up something quite smart. The drafting is well done and the pattern pieces lend themselves well to blending sizes and getting adventurous and hacking it into a truly unique one of a kind make. It is evident that care was taken when deciding on finished measurements to make this coat truly a unisex pattern.

    Absolutely stunning. A beautiful wardrobe staple that is great for both boys and girls. My 10y.o loves that he can move, run and play with a ball, while still having a warm layer. Great step by step tutorial that really simplifies the process and that lining turning out trick is MAGIC! Recommend to everyone.

    Brilliant, easy to follow fully lined coat pattern! I’ve made one for my daughter and am currently working on one each for my son and godson. Easy for a beginner and if you ever get stuck, the Below the Kowhai FB community is fantastic at helping out. Absolutely loved sewing this up!

    Thank you for such a great pattern! I love the simple, but professional looking lines. The facing looks really smart, and the fit is great. I also like the generous hood. This is the type of pattern that you can really make your own!

    I’ve made a couple now and absolutely love this pattern! The instructions are so clear and simple to follow – the sleeve trick is amazing! My boys love their coats and are planning which fabric they want for their next ones! I can see myself using this pattern again and again as they grow. Everyone is amazed at these jackets and ask where my kids got them.

    Not sure if you are up to making a COAT? That’s what I thought, before this pattern! It really is easy to make something that looks super professional. Using a wool blanket from the second hand shop for the outer layer also meant that I could make my 4 Yr old a snuggly coat for very little cost. This pattern is definitely a favourite.

    I was amazed that I was able to make this coat. Looking at the pictures I didn’t think I had enough skills to make something that looks so neat and professional but I did it and it’s amazing!
    The tutorial and instructions are very well written and clear to follow that I didn’t make mistakes and the excitement and pride of seeing the finished garment was great as a sewer.
    I made a size 4 for my 3year-old who is between sizes and am wanting this to fit for next winter as well. I have attached toggles that can be moved to increase the chest width as she grows. She is loving wearing it on colder days and we are hopeful we’ll get in some snow trips next season in it. I used a knit blend fabric and fleece lining so that it is toasty warm, the next one I’m planning to use a cotton lining and a lighter exterior (still on the hunt) so that this can be a jacket for autumn and spring as well.
    This was a fun sew, and I found it difficult to stop because of how enjoyable each step was.
    If you’re looking for a pattern that will make a quality garment that can be handed down between children I think this is a good option, I know I will be making many more coats in years to come!
