Luzerne Trench Coat
Deer & Doe is our go-to for classic patterns with modern styling. And the Luzerne Trench is right on trend, as an unlined, fit-and-flare, double-breasted trench coat with princess seams. It has many classic details which make it an involved and rewarding sewing project such as its skirt which features pleats on the front and back and diagonal welt pockets, as well as two-piece sleeves, which add both comfort and elegance.
A large collar with a collar stand give a more modern look, and bound buttonholes add a couture finish (Though you can easily convert these to regular buttonholes if you desire). The back yoke alludes to traditional storm flaps but in a more streamlined way, and buttoned sleeve tabs dress up the wrists of the two-piece sleeves. All in all, a stunning coat that will be as challenging and it is satisfying (what I'm always searching for in a sewing project, to be honest)
The pattern envelope contains a full size pattern (with 4 overlapping pieces) and an instruction booklet.
