I wanted to put a spin on a trench and remembered a Burberry trench from a few years ago that I loved, and created this one using Simplicity 2285 with the following alterations:

-Added 3″ to the width of front edge to make the double breast

-Added 1″ to the length of front yoke

-Squared off the bottom of the front of the pattern

-Remove 14.5″ from the length of the sleeve

-Added a removable undersleeve using Vogue V8841 (Added a 1″ elastic to the top of the sleeve and connected the removable sleeve to the inside of the short sleeve using a shank button)

-Added 2 15″x1″ sleeve belts

-Added 3 2″x1″ belt loops

-Added elastic at the top of the sleeve
