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:

Looks great. But it sure is going to be too hot to wear that soon. Love the colour. It's so much nicer than boring old black and will look lovely and cheery next winter.

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..

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 :) Thank you!

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!

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.

I love your coat. You look fabulous in it. I hope, however, that you get very little wear from it until next autumn! It is a great colour.

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.
