She’s finally here!! My newest pattern the Whitney Raincoat is here just in time for those April Showers! I’m so excited to introduce her to you.
The Whitney Raincoat is a swingy raincoat with raglan sleeves, inseam pockets, and a roomy hood. Whitney is fully lined and features side front seams as well as a center back box pleat for extra movement and color blocking opportunities!
Each Amy Nicole pattern is named after a woman who has been an inspiration in my life. This pattern is named after one of my fashion mentors, Whitney Pozgay of Whit-NY. Whitney is one of the few genuinely kind souls in the fashion industry, and she introduced me to the magic that is a swing silhouette.
Make it Yours
I always try to make my patterns customization-friendly! Make the Whitney Raincoat unique to you by playing with color blocking & print mixing. You could also experiment with length by making the coat longer for full length coverage or crop it for a trendy look! Skip the hood and sew it in a non waterproof fabric for a regular spring coat. You could even add fun details like grommets under the arms for air flow or a
drawstring in the hood.
The Whitney Raincoat is available in sizes 0-32. As with all Amy Nicole Patterns, she is drafted for petites (a height of 5’4″ and under). Taller sewists may need to add length to the coat and/or sleeves. Whitney is drafted with a swing silhouette, the coat is more fitted in the shoulders and flares out slightly for a subtle & playful shape with lots of movement. There is a center back pleat for a little extra flare and volume as well. The pattern hits just below the crotch line. The hood is roomy enough for a top knot!
The Whitney Raincoat is my most advanced pattern release to date! The coat is fully lined with a bagged lining and includes other challenging features such as a separating zipper, stand collar, gusseted hood & raglan sleeves. Don’t be scared!

I hope you love this new pattern as much as I do! She has been a long time in the making.
