Vogue V9367 is a sewing pattern for a classic trench coat or raincoat. A beautiful coat and ideal for transitional periods when the weather is not thát cold but also not warm enough to go outside without a coat. A trench coat is one of the classics because it has been 'in fashion' for years and a must-have for everyone!
What's in the name?
A trench coat is a fixed concept: it is a raincoat made of gabardine, twill, or poplin cotton. The appearance of the coat has its military origin and you can immediately recognize the trench coat by the double row of buttons, which are usually made of metal or leather (leather look). The raincoat has shoulder epaulets, flaps on the shoulders, regular pockets or welt pockets and a belt. The jacket can vary from short to very long and can be for colder days (with lining) or super thin for the summer.
VERY EASY Vogue V9367
The Vogue category says it all: this is an easy sewing pattern for beginners. The convenience is mainly due to the fact that elements such as the epaulets, lining and welt pockets have been omitted. The sleeves are spacious and are easy to sew. The pockets are in the side seam and are also easy to make. The instructions with the boss are clear and well-arranged. The trench coat is indeed a fun project for beginners. There are no pitfalls or difficult sewing techniques in this sewing pattern.
Tip: pay attention, the jacket is very spacious. It may be wise to choose a size smaller if you prefer the jacket a little less spacious.
The recommended fabrics are gabardine, poplin and raincoat fabrics. These fabrics can be found under the search terms: waterproof fabrics, water-repellent fabrics or outdoor fabrics. Please note that the 'outdoor' fabrics are not too thick or heavy. We think that you can also make the jacket from twill cotton or do you want to make something very special: from taffeta silk. Taffeta silk is sturdy and a free stiff fabric, ideal for making a jacket.
Make sure that the fabric you choose need to be firm: to create a bit of shape and stiffness. By the way, how about a print or design? That will make the jacket unique and striking. Do choose a design or print that has no horizontal or vertical stripes, this will be too difficult to connect the pattern parts neatly together.
Vogue V9367 is a simple sewing pattern for a classic trench coat. As a beginner you can easily make this jacket. As for experienced or very experienced seamstresses, you can expand the jacket by adding a special collar, by making shoulder epaulets on it, making welt pockets and adding a nice lining.
The result: a light raincoat that always comes in handy!
