Description

My second jacket ever! I started out wanting to make a pretty typical trench coat, but without enough fabric, this is what I ended up with! I used Simplicity 2508 as the base pattern and substituted the collar from S2858. I’m really really happy with how it turned out!

    I think my picture files were too large :) They should be fixed now!

      thank you so much :) I’m really happy with this one! It took tons of time, but I wanted to make it look nice. Still needs a lining before I can wear it though!
