This is my second attempt at a trench coat. The first time, I hadn’t realised that outerware needs more ease! It is much too small! This one is not. It’s A-line, and fairly wide. It fits over a blazer, and it is comfortable for cycling (without the blazer, ofcourse!). Sewing it mas very long and painful: that coated fabric doesn’t react very well to ironning, and does not let the interfacing stick to it for very long! But it appears to be at least water resistent! I’m mostly happy with the pattern, and I can’t wait for the return of appropriate weather!
Coated cotton-nylon mix for the upper part and apple green rayonne lining from Montreal; beautiful, but expensive pearl and olive green buttons from Senci in Mannheim
