I made a trench coat, using Burda 7786, with a few modifications to make it double breasted. I love its classic style and see it becoming a wardrobe staple that I’ll turn to time and time again…
Most of the outside seams are double top-stitched, and I finished the inside seams with Hong Kong finishes using bias binding I made myself from old black cotton. I lined the inside with soft cotton shirting for an extra layer of warmth..
