Such a fabulous looking coat!! I saw some coated linens (is that what this is? ) and the salesperson told me they were dry-clean only. So I'm curious: is your fabric washable? Is it waterproof?

Erica, you already know that this jacket is TDF! I'd just be repeating myself how much I love this jacket. The fabric is fab.

Erica, is this the same trench coat pattern, different fabric, you started last year and stopped? I love it!
3/24/09 10:51 AM
Erica B. said...
@ Kim Brown, yep... same pattern. I still plan to do it in the royal blue.
3/24/09 11:10 AM
Erica B. said...
@ peaudane, I pre-washed this fabric and pressed it while it was damp. But I will still send it the cleaners when needed.

How does one say P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N!!! That says it all. Once again you have outdone yourself.

Wow, wow, wow! Just gorgeous. I can see why you fell in love with the fabric and the lining is the perfect foil. Another fantabulous sewing project from you.

I've been looking for a good trench coat for the rain. How did you make the sleeve heads? I really like this style and of course, you did a great job, as usual.

Mahler said...
What a nice surprise, I thought you had sewn a longer trench coat after seeing the teaser on your blog. What a great length ! Very urban chic. You look so nice in that colour. It is a grayish blue on my screen. This is a fantastic colour on you.
3/24/09 1:37 PM
Erica B. said...
@ Puddin Pop, I didn't make the sleeve heads. I purchased them from Atlanta Thread Co.

Erica, I've had my eye on your work for some time now because you are such an inspiration. This trench jacket is absolutely gorgeous- you are very talented indeed! Just an idea- had you considered a spray on water repellant to make your jacket all-weather? Keep up the great work!
