Description

Trench coat made from Sewaholic’s Robson pattern.
I made it from an showerproof micro fibre, lined with a plaid poly viscose, which has the feel of flannel.
I have made a few mistakes – it is not the neatest of finishes, but I have learned a lot along the way and ended up with a coat which is perfect for Autumn and Spring!

I have also blogged extensively about making the coat, over at Is It Fitting

      thank you – the lining does not match up very well, but as it is broken up with hot pink bias tape I can live with that!

      Thank you. I’ve certainly been getting some wear out of it this last week – the weather here has been very wet!
