This replicated pattern is sized to fit a 34 inch bust.

This 1923 coat has deep set raglan sleeves with belted waist and wide turn back cuffs. The collar may be made to open lapel-style, or to stand up around the neck with a button closure. Illustration photos are from Pictorial Review Autumn 1923 catalog.

See below for a (LONG) review of this pattern - there are lots of construction notes so I left it as written:

Right off the bat, the length is much longer than it seems in the illustration, it is ankle length. There are also tabs extending from the top of the coat fronts that did not have any corresponding tabs on the facing so I cut those off. The layout illustration only shows the cuff piece cut twice but you need 4. The pattern only gives layout and yardages for doing the coat in one solid color with no contrast. I used 1-3/4 of a yard to make the contrast. The pattern shapes are simple, with only one set of darts to be made in the coat fronts. It is designed to not even be lined, although the instructions do mention how to line it if desired. The cut is loose, so no fussy fitting is required. There are no pockets to deal with, and the pieces fit together well. I am also very pleased with how VPLL had the necessary markings drawn on, they are printed in a second color to make them more distinguishable from the cutting lines. I am very pleased with the end result, I got a ton of compliments on it.
