A classic lined thrench coat with all of the traditional details. It is calf-length and double-breasted, belted waist with belt loops, and features a deep hem vent at the back for ease of movement. There is a lined cape on the shoulders for practicality (rain!), strapped cuffs with buttons for tightening, and a traditional storm flap button fastening across the neck. The welt pockets that fold in the middle to form a flap and rounded lapels are the only hint at a feminine update of the trench style.
Sizes: EUR 32 to 46 (US 0-14, UK 4-18).
Choose a light coating such as a light wool blend, gabardine or cotton twill. Waterproofed fabrics or a light oilcloth would also be suitable - use a teflon sewing machine foot. The sample is made in a light wool twill coating.
