Indygo Junction Midtown Trench

  Last September when I attended the American Stitches Sewing Expo in Novi, MI, I picked up this pattern, The Midtown Trench by Indygo Junction.

I also purchased this bold gray and purple print at the Expo from my favorite vendor, Vogue Fabrics. The fabric is actually a somewhat drapey, cotton/rayon blend I think. But it did sew up nicely for this application. 


I am loving these wide collars and big buttons lately, with a retro feel to them:


Of course, the swing pleats in the back are really cute, and the two-piece sleeve adds interest. Side seam pockets are handy too.





Since we are still having WINTER weather here in Michigan, I wanted to wear this to work at least once this season and grab some pics. Now I am on to summer sewing!

  2. Oh thank you for this review. I have this pattern but have hesitated to make it. It looks very flattering on you
    and the fabric is perfect for it. Do you think it would translate as well in something vinyl coated for true rain wear?

  3. Patty You look so elegant wearing your interpretation of this pattern! It is both striking and sophisticated.

    Theresa, I saw another displayed at the Atlanta ASG booth at the recent Atlanta Sewing Expo and as I recall, it was in one of those new coated cotton fabrics.

  4. Theresa: I think this pattern would work up great as rainwear! I keep thinking about using the new vinyls to make myself a jazzy spring raincoat!

  5. I have this pattern and need to use it after seeing your jacket. It is 80+ today in South Texas, so it would be for next fall.

  7. I work for Indygo Junction and I just love the Midtown Trench. We have made it out of the new laminated fabrics as a raincoat and it worked out great.

  9. The jacket looks great. I like the fabric even more than when you bought it now that I see it made up. It was a great choice for that pattern. Now I want to get that pattern for sure.
