Sophia Trench Coat


Have you ever made your husband turn the car around, park, cross a street and help you climb a fountain? No? Um, yeah, me neither……



The pattern is from Serindipity Studios. I used a black chambray by Kaufman Fabrics, with a bit of Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding for Moda as a fun surprise on the inside.

Next time there must be pockets.

Nicely done. I also like the red trim for finishing the seams.

Ok, trench coats are up there in my list of things I don't sew - like jeans, bathing suits, and bras. So, hats off to you! This turned out really nice. I especially love the bias bound seam allowances!

This is INCREDIBLE!!!! you look amazing in it... The pattern doesn't do it justice. They should ask you to pose for the cover. You would make them, killer money :) Love the photos... How you get in there?
