A vintage trench dress

Vintage McCalls 9393 pattern

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a J.Crew’s inspired trench dress using vintage McCall’s pattern 9393. It has long sleeve, partial gathered skirts, two side pockets and self-drafted right shoulder flap. I also added ivory trims to front panel and sleeve hems using store-bought ribbon bias binding.

Although it looks like a wrap skirt, the designer thoughtfully added a pleat underneath to connect two front skirt panels together. If it’s ever too windy, this pleat┬ácan actually save you from the embarrassed wardrobe malfunction.
