This is an Indie Pattern Designer Event workshop. Over ten hours you will make a stunning Sapporo Coat by Papercut Patterns. We ran this event in 2018 and it was a fantastic, with 13 stunning Sapporo Coats being made by students in class with us!


With angled seaming, unusually shaped pattern pieces and a full lining, this is an intermediate level pattern that is ideal for tackling with a teacher's support.

The Sapporo Coat Features: angled seams, cropped sleeves, tapered cuffs, pockets hide in the front seams and a lining.

Make it from a cosy wool for cooler weather, or a lighter woven for Spring. Look at our Sapporo Coat ideas on Pinterest - click here. It goes perfectly with Papercut's Sigma Dress (which you can also make in class at Thread Den!).

I had a great weekend of sewing with Danielle. The Sapporo Coat is a stylish pattern. The putting together was made much easier by Danielle’s patient and clear instructions. This was especially true for me who had never attempted a lined coat before. I will be back to another class at Thread Den. Great fun and productive.
