Trench coat for Seattle rain
Added Jan 30, 2013
Trench in waterproof cotton.
I changed a few things – I didn’t care for the yokes so I borrowed the ones for the front from one of the other versions of this coat from the magazine and just redrew the back yoke. I used a 42 but took out some ease and did a narrow shoulder adjustment all in one by cutting along the grainlines and overlapping them for a total of 2" taken out of the circumference. Obviously I made a muslin after these changes :) And I left out the piping and made it shorter.
