Cream and Beige Trench Coat

I have wanted to make a trench coat for a while now, so when I saw this one in the 02/2019 issue I knew it had to be my Mash Up! It was fun and quite easy to sew, as I omitted the back vent and lining making it shorter and more suitable for spring. That being said, I certainly didn’t photograph it in spring – so a turtleneck and faux fur headband were in need.

For the fabric I used Pendleton Wool apparel weight wool in ivory mixed with some beige twill I had leftover from a Sew-Along sample I filmed earlier this year. People can be iffy on white and beige together, but I quite like it and I think it will blend nicely into my capsule collection for the year!

    I will cut this trench coat tonight! I’m still not sure about this pattern. Maybe it’s a bit shapeless but I’ll try it…

    Personally, not that anyone cares about my opinion, this coat looks like a hot mess. Didn’t you even use any interfacing ? Structured outer garments regardless of how .. loosely tailored still need interfacing. The lapels need major work and a hot iron. The coat would have been better in all beige or cream, the 2 tone does not work. This coat needs a major overhaul and someone who knows how to make a properly structured tailored garment. Doesn’t even look like you lined it. Definitely not one of your better makes. Just looks like a messy home sewing job.
