Spring Forward / Un bond vers le printemps

I’ve been busy sewing up a storm in the past few months. I thought I should take a little break from sewing and share my makes on this blog. Let me introduce you to my latest style crush… the fluid trench coat. I’ve been dreaming of sewing my own ever since I saw this one from Michael Kors.

Ces derniers temps, la couture a pris tout mon temps. J’ai pensé prendre une pose pour vous montrer mes dernières créations. J’aimerais vous présenter mon dernier coup de coeur, le trench coat fluide. Je rêve de m’en coudre un depuis que j’ai vu celui-ci de Michael Kors.

Here’s the pattern I used to make my version. I started by making the longer version of the trench coat but I did not like that length on me. I think that it looks better since I shortened it to mid-thigh. I used a tencel twill from Cali Fabrics. The fabric is a bit thicker than I would have liked, but overall, I’m happy with the results.

Voici le patron que j’ai utilisé pour coudre ma version. J’ai commencé par coudre la version longue du trench coat mais je n’aimais cette longueur sur moi. Je pense que le  manteau me fait mieux depuis que je l’ai raccourci à la mi-cuisse. J’ai utilisé du sergé de tencel (tencel twill) de Cali Fabrics. Le tissu est un brin plus épais que je ne l’aurais souhaité, mais sommes toutes, je suis très satisfaite du produit fini.

  1. I love, love, LOVE your new trench coat, Chantal! It looks so good on you and I think the length really suits you well. Also it is the perfect length to keep the weather off of you, while being easy to get in and out of the car without having too much “coat” to deal with. It is a fabulous make – thanks for sharing!
