This coat has a flattering empire style waist and tucks to shape the bust area. It is the perfect thing for a sunny day when you need a bit more warmth.
Just for fun, there are two sleeve options - an elbow-length and a flared, long bell sleeve.
The long sleeve version (left illustration), laps across the front and fastens with a button at the waist. Interior ties help keep everything tidy. An extra long scarf is stitched to the center back for a bit of flare.
The elbow sleeve version (right illustration) has an open front - all the better to show off your lovely dress beneath.

A Note About Grading Vintage Patterns
Grading from one size into a wider range of sizes is both a science and an art. This is especially true with vintage patterns, that were often inaccurately manufactured, or previously used/altered by a past seamstress.
Prior to grading, the digitized original size is checked to make sure that seam edges and notches match. The grading process can (and often does) introduce some variables. This can be especially true when expanding or shrinking more than three sizes from the original. Such as from a 32 Bust to 42 Bust. Or down from a 42 Bust to a 32 Bust.
You may see some little peaks or valleys along curved edges like armholes or sleeve caps. Just adjust your cutting to smooth out the curve where needed. Shoulder seams and neck lines may widen or lengthen disproportionately – use the closest size to your measurements, and adjust accordingly.
Always sew a test garment to verify and alter fit before constructing the garment out of your final fabric.
