The Asymmetrical Trench Pattern
Part of our 2019 Build a Wardrobe programming, The Asymmetrical Trench pattern includes two length variations: peacoat and trench. Both variations offer a double-breasted front and an optional storm shield. Add the optional stripe appliqué to the front or use our Pockets Pattern for a utilitarian look. Pattern comes in sizes XS to XXL along with instructions for fabric selection, cutting, and garment construction. See chart below for yardage requirements. This pattern is designed for use with The School of Making™ Studio Book Series as a reference for detailed sewing instruction.
