trench coat - burda magazine 12/2013, #101

finally made a trench coat
that i had on my mind for nearly two years
ever since the pattern came out
almost made it last fall
as i had the pattern traced
and all the fabric and notions sourced out,
but then i stumbled upon perfect '70s trench coat
in my size, and for the price of one euro!
so why bother making a brand new one
a year later, i finally sewed it!
made my usual size 38
with no changes to the pattern
(except skipping the pockets and back vent,
print is already really busy
so i wanted to simplify the coat as much as possible)
pretty pleased with how it turned out..
and will be even more pleased
when i get back to my ironing board
and steam the hell out of that hem
so it ain't that wonky anymore
