The Grainline Studio Cortland Trench sewing pattern is a modern take on the classic trench coat. The design has a modern swing shape and raglan sleeves, with typical features of a trench coat such as storm flaps and a generous collar to keep out inclement weather. The length reaches to mid-hip. The Cortland also features a double-breasted front closure and roomy welt pockets. All seams are bound, which not only gives your coat a professional finish, but also helps it stand up to wear and tear.
Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, welt pockets, Hong Kong seam finishing, topstitching, sewing a collar & collar stand, inserting buttonholes, and hand sewing.
Fabric and Notions:
Main Fabric: Lightweight coating or medium weight fabrics such as cotton or tencel twill, gabardine, or linen. Make sure your fabric has drape to allow the swing shape of the coat to hang properly. We recommend fabric weights between 5 – 8 oz.
Pocket Lining Fabric: lightweight cotton fabrics such as chambray, lawn, or pocketing.
Fusible Interfacing: woven or tricot interfacing in a similar, or slightly lighter, weight as your main fabric.
Notions: Thread, 6 — 1" buttons, 12 yds pre-made 1/4" double fold bias tape if binding seam allowances
