Note: This pattern is now out of print.
I saw this really cute trenchcoat on a website a while ago, but wasn’t willing to pay over $100 for it. (Not including shipping and handling). So if I can make a medieval gown in a little more than a week, I can make my own trenchcoat! I found this pattern from McCall’s, and it was perfect. The part I like most is the ruffle on the bottom. I know, really girly, but it’s cute.
Next I had to look for fabric. At the suggestion of my mom, I avoided the huge fabric chain stores to find something online. She found some really nice coatings at GorgeousFabrics.com and I ordered a bunch of swatches. I’ve decided to go with the Soft Pink flannel coating. I need to find some lining still, and I want to do some chocolate brown piping along the edge of the coat and around the collar, so I’ll have to look for some of that too. We get paid this week, so hopefully I’ll get to order my fabric this weekend!Share on Facebook
