The Luzerne Trench is a fit-and-flare double-breasted trench coat with princess seams, unlined. Its skirt has pleats on the front and back, and diagonal welt pockets. It has two-piece sleeves, which add both comfort and elegance. It has many classic details which make it an involved and rewarding sewing project, including a large collar with a collar stand, and bound buttonholes for a couture finish (Though you can easily convert these to regular buttonholes if you desire). The back yoke alludes to traditional storm flaps in a more streamlined way. Finally, buttoned sleeve tabs dress up the wrists of the two-piece sleeves. More...
- Cotton + Steel Mishmesh Indigo Cotton Canvas - Leave it to Cotton + Steel to make a fun and stylish canvas fabric. Lighter weight than most canvas you might think of, this fabric is soft and supple, and has a geometric net pattern criss-crossing on its face.

- Burgundy Cotton Duck - Up until researching fabrics for these coats, I have to admit, I only vaguely knew what duck cloth was. So don't feel bad if you've never heard of it before. Duck is actually a type of canvas that features a high thread count and smoother hand, making it great for some garment sewing, like trench coats. The duck we've chosen for this trench is a beautiful, burgundy red. The elegant colors contrasts perfectly with the simple weave of the cloth and makes for one heck of a trench coat (if we do say so ourselves)
