Fall is in the air, and I find myself in need of a lightweight coat. I've decided on Indygo Junction's Midtown Trench.
I first paid attention to this coat when I saws it on Patty's post. Hers was made from a black/white print and cute as can be. I like the pleats in the back, the slightly belled sleeve and big collar. The fabric is a textured burgundy something or other--in other words, content unknown. It's beefy fabric, and the back is brushed.
I made a muslin, and decreased the ease in the front princess seam a bit, so it eased in better. Other than that, the only changes I made was to lengthen the coat. The pattern calls for an unlined coat, but mine will be lined. Today I cut fashion fabric. Next, I will cut and fuse interfacing. I'm going to fuse the entire front and the back yoke.
So, it's started. I need to focus and get it done in the next couple of weeks because the temps are cooling down fast. Seems like I'm always late for the show!
