Strike It Rich Gold Trenchcoat

Strike It Rich Gold Trenchcoat

This was an easy and versitile coat to make, I made it out of gold drapery taffeta that has jaquard lines throughout the fabric.  I found the most beautiful rhinestone buttons and it just so happened I had the rhinestone brooch that matched the buttons perfectly.  I love the pleated loose yoke in the back and the belted waist.  The lining is bright yellow that contrasts with the gold fabric, but I like the contrast.


Pattern or design used: Simplicity Threads # 4084
