9/2006 #104 Orchid Trench

Added Dec 9, 2013

by clothingengi...

Litchfield Count...






Classic trench with vertical princess seams, shoulder epaulettes, sleeve tabs, neck tab, and gun flap in a medium to heavy wool melton. I’ve been admiring this coat ever since I first saw it in the September 2006 issue of Burda, and after making it I can say that it lived up to my expectations.

You can view the blog post here for more details.

Material Notes

A medium orchid wool melton, fully lined in black “heavy backed satin lining” from Cleaner’s Supply.

    Very nice, I like how it looks on you! Do you know what else? It’s made in the pallette of Pantone’s colour of the 2014!
