My finished coat from the Pattern~Scissors~Cloth Ready-To-Wear Tailoring Sew-Along hosted by Sherry. I was inspired by a trench coat in a Burberry advertisement featuring Emma Watson. I took a pattern from my stash, vintage Simplicity 6976, for the basic shape and then began to draft the changes that I wanted. I added a collar with collar stand, storm flaps, pleats at the shoulder, six rows of buttons, and a belt. I used a camel-colored gabardine for the outer and a Burberry rainwear for the lining.
