Fall Inspiration...

I've started looking at the Fall 2015 Folklorica Trend and found this fantastic trench:

This is the Burberry Prorsum trench coat and you really should head over to Neiman Marcus and check out the details.  This coat is suede and only retails for $7,500.00.  Yes, this is one of those items that you could duplicate if you chose.  Here's the back detail:

What do you think of the fringe?  I suppose that the fringe is the big trend item.  I'm not sure how I feel about the fringe for myself but it is certainly a fun detail.  This looks like a fairly classic trench coat and the only one I can think of that is an exact duplicate of the Burberry trench (with cup sizing added of course) is the Barbara's Trench by Silhouette Patterns:

The pattern maker stated that she actually duplicated a Burberry Trench for this pattern.  What about the fringe?  Well, Peggy at Silhouette Patterns has done a couple of videos this summer on how to add the fringe.  Hope on over to the Silhouette Patterns youtube channel and check out it out.

Hope you inspired to make something beautiful for yourself.

Happy Stitching!
