    Skills Used

    looks pretty flash!

    I loved sewing this coat. I thought it would take a long time to sew, but I finished it in only a day. The binding on the seams looks neat. The only complaint I have is that the end of the binding is showing between the sleeves and side seams. That's something that could be rectified next time I make it...and I have had requests from my other children for their own trench coat!

    A Tremendous Trench.

    What a fabulous and well designed pattern. Perfectly stylised design with the definite 'trench' look without being complicated to sew. Very clear instructions with good tips on seam finishing. A generous fit that layers well.
