For quite a while now I’ve wanted a classic beige trench coat. I finally decided to try my hand at making one. I used Simplicity 4084.
The one part of this coat that drove me crazy was the sleeves. Setting in the sleeves was a total pain. The bulk of the fabric in the shoulder area made it really difficult for me to manipulate the fabric into place.
I used a trench coat fabric I bought while visiting China 18 months ago. All of the top stitching was done with a top stitch thread (much thicker than normal thread) so that it would stand out properly.
