It’s been a long time in the making, but my Winter Trench Coat is finished now and I am very happy about it!
I didn’t change the original pattern apart from making the whole coat a little shorter but the sleeves full length.
But that was not due to a design decision but to the fact that I had only about 60 % of the fabric the instructions ask for (especially because I had unknowingly bought fabric that is 120cm wide rather than the more usual 140 cm – I only realised when I started cutting…). Some construction details are here and here and here.
This coat saw the advent of my first bound button holes,
the first large scale top-stitching,
I also got to use my new tags again:
So for the first time eva’ I am able to show off a complete me-made outfit with jeans (finished garment not blogged yet), another version of my favourite top and this coat. And because i it is so unseasonably warm here I can actually wear this coat right now.
So watch me happily stroll into the sunset 😉
