It may seem like the wrong time of year to be making coats, but if you live in Newfoundland, you understand. Julyuary weather has made an appearance once again and it’s sort of depressing. However, all is not lost because it gives an excuse to make lovely outerwear! Check out our latest make: the Robson Trench Coat.
Pattern: Robson Trench by Sewaholic Patterns
Fabric: A bargain-bin find from Fabricville – It’s sort of twill-esque with a fun geo pattern.
This coat was a bit of a time-consuming project because of all the details. There are a lot of small touches that make trenches the style staples that they are, like the collar, the sleeve tabs, the belt, and the buttons. So this one took a little while to whip up, but it was definitely worth it.
The best thing about this pattern is that it required no adjustments! Sewaholic patterns are designed for pear-shape figures, so the fit was spot on for me.
This pattern is the quintessential trench, and I absolutely love it!
