A finished trench coat

All I wanted was a strong coloured single breasted trench coat that needed the least amount of hand sewing possible. The lining is machine sewn to the coat and I hand sewed the buttons and some of the buttohole detailing – and that was it.

Here are the previous trenchcoat posts:

  1. Whoa that's awesome! The fit is great and you're really rocking it with those boots.. I've only finished a muslin thus far (and it's not even really a muslin because I already cut out the fashion fabric version XD). Just need to get the buttons and buttonholes in..


  2. A purple trench coat with red lining is my kind of coat! Your work is absolutely beautiful and so is the coat. It definitely has the WOW factor! I've been drifting back into my comfort zone but you've inspired me to snap out of it πŸ™‚ Thank you!


  3. I think this is one of my favorite versions of this coat. The color is fantastic! I love the styling too. I've gotta ask…NAVY boots? I need a pair of those in my closet! Nice work!


  4. Super big congratulations.
    Everyhing looks fabulous especially the colour .
    You must be very pleased. Victoria has had some cool weather recently so hopefully you have had a chance to enjoy.


  5. it looks absolutly fabulous, especially the purple/red colour combination. Purple is such a happy colour and once Autumn arrives you'll be like this beacon of happiness πŸ™‚


  6. Beautiful work! Thanks for all the tips on making this trench. Still working on my UFO version (double-breasted). I would love to try the single-breasted version next.


  7. Oh I missed this before!!
    You look utterly fabulous; the colour the style and the finishing are all superb. Bravo! This is an absolutely terrific pattern; one of my favourites too πŸ™‚


  8. Vavavoom! Loving the trench coat. Especially your color choices. With those boots it makes the perfect “special” outfit for a special someone πŸ˜‰
