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.
