    This is amazing. I would never have thought of doing piping like that – it makes the jacket so different!

    WOW! Beautiful! I’m just wondering how on earth you managed to get an exact half polka dot on every edge?!?

    I am speechless! This is one of the most perfect jackets I’ve ever seen! The polkadot fabric under the collar is just smashing, and the coat looks sooo good!

    I love this! such a great idea to add the accents! it give the garment a whole new look! is the fabric water proof?? I want to make a raincoat/ waterproof trench coat myself but can’t seem to find the right fabric!

      Hello kess !!

      My garment is gabardine, but not really waterproof.

      I heard easy way is using nylon oxford, laminate, Gore-tex or waterproof spray.

      Sorry i cannot help you….
      But I hope you find nice garment !
      Thank you.

    Such a beautiful coat!

    Could you maybe tell me what kind of interfacing you used? I’m in the proces of making a trenchcoat myself and can’t decide on which one to use.

      Hello LittleGirl !

      I recommend to choose it with sewing shop staff.
      Because of it will depend on the garment you use.

      For your information, followings are my example.

      interfacing type : non-woven / fusible / light weight type (the gabardine i used was strong and hard,so light type was enough)
      I used it on : whole facing / body upper side(around shoulder) / back collar / hem line / pockets / botton holes

      I hope you can find your perfect one !!!
      thank you.
