Fancy Twirly Olive Trench

Added Apr 12, 2010

Seattle, Washing...






I love my new jacket!

The pattern was basically painless. Pleats: fun, gathering: fun, easy lining: awesome, no zipper: hell yes! The fit was a bit large as usual, but that is fine because I do intend on making a belt at some point.

And unfortunately, the back pleat looks a little vaggy. (See last photo)

PS: This pattern does not specify which pieces to interface. I just did the collar parts, and I was going to do the cuffs as well, but got too excited and completely forgot.

Material Notes

Olive twill, polyester lining, buttons!




Garment Type
Classic, Romantic

    This is such a nice colour! And the lining is the cutest! I’m a sucker for a cute trench coat :)

    Oh, the Tikva! Well done! Great to hear it wasn’t too difficult. I’d like to make one but I probably won’t get around to doing it before next year. Normally I wouldn’t like the colour that much, but on you it looks really good, so I also think it wasa good choice!

    I second the Wow, it look so much better than burdastyle’s version! It is so chic and I think the color was a brilliant choice!! totally stunning, and I love it accessorized with the leather belt and red lips!!!

    Wow, that’s amazing! Love the colour and the lining fabric, awesome job! Can you recommend this pattern to me, as someone floating somewhere between beginner and intermediate?
