This is my inspiration for the Trench sew-a-long. I realize this is not a trench coat; I have one and never wear it. (Not even once.) It is from a 2009 issue of Stylebook. I'm going to cut off some of the length, so that the hem sits just below my hip. I think. We'll see.
Here are the instructions. I can't believe I am going to try and draft this puppy. (Glutton for Punishment.)
