Friday Five!: Trench Coat Sewing Patterns
It’s been a while since I last posted here, due to one long-ass house move (more on that in a later post!). Now that I’m more or less settled into my new abode, I thought it was time to start writing again. I work full-time so my sewing and DIY time is quite limited, but I always find time to go investigating patterns and fabric, basically planning future projects. And so I decided to start sharing these with you, my readers, in the form of Friday Five. Each week I will share with you my favorite patterns to hopefully give bountiful sewing inspiration in time for the weekend.
This week, I bring you my 5 favorite trench coat sewing patterns. Thanks to all the wet, windy but mild weather we have had in the UK, there isn’t a better time to sew one of these.
#1 Sewaholic Robson coat

I’ll admit I had never heard of this brand until now. But wow I love this pattern. It even has a short length version which looks just as good.
