Dorcas took up the spring trench trend and made a glamorous one. Thanks for sharing the details and kudos on drafting the lining pattern! You can follow Dorcas and all of her sewing adventures on her blog, lonestarcouture.
While most parts of the country are still enjoying some chilly spring weather, here in Houston it’s warming up so my outing to the Art with Heart Gala last night may have been my last opportunity this season to wear the fabulous spring coat I made. This glam trench is another in the series of Wardrobe Basics by Roz at Sew Much Fabric.
We selected a beautiful mid-weight Metallic Gold Stretch Linen with accents of a Brocade in Gold/Cream. The pattern is from the 02/2017 Burda Style magazine, #103. The suggested coat in the magazine is unlined but I drafted a lining for mine using a lovely rayon lining also from SMF.
I especially like the attached belt and pleat detail. It has lovely shaping through the waist and I really love the back.
I looked and looked for just the right buttons and they were under my nose the whole time! I made covered buttons using the brocade. And not only are they the perfect accent they were a cinch to make.
I had never drafted a coat lining before so I’m sorta proud of the this one. I even kicked it up a notch and added piping!
I know I will get a lot of wear out of this great basic with its neutral-with-a-kick color palette and timeless design. All fabrics still available at Sew Much Fabric so hurry over!
