VintageModern Design Challenge Trench Topper

Added Mar 12, 2012

by becci

Adelaide Hills, ...






It was so hard to chose just one pattern, but eventually I chose the Indygo Junction Trench Topper. I settled on view 1 without the belt. I used the sleeves from view 2. The fabric is a gorgeous green/ blue herringbone wool. I lined it with black raw silk. The buttons are faceted vintage glass buttons. They are my favourite part of the coat.

Now I just need the weather to come in cooler so I can wear it!

Material Notes

Green/ blue herringbone wool. Raw silk lining.

    That looks lovely. It’s a rare sunny day here, but now I want to make a coat like that!

    I just love this! The wool is such a great color and really stands out from anything RTW.
