Created especially for the horsemen who rode the rugged Outback at the turn of the 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 while riding. The front opening is covered with a rectangular flap for wind and rain protection, and the partial lining adds warmth.
The basic, clean 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 can be made in a variety of fabrics, waterproof or not. Lore and authentic detailing inside this pattern provide information on waterproofing fabrics for these garments.
A thick turtleneck sweater, knit in a small wings stitch, is perfect for layering in cold weather. Knitting pattern is included.
