This vintage pattern is named for the seam lines in the back which appear to be crossing each other. This unlined coat can be made with or without a collar. It drapes open in the front but you could always add a frog or hook and eye if you want it to close at the center front. It is the perfect lightweight coat for an extra layer. Color block the sections or make it all from one fabric for a more subtle look.
Suggested fabrics: lightweight wool, linen, heavy silk, bottom weight rayon.
