The Taylor Trench is the ultimate childrens trench coat pattern. It’s got the wow factor and more.
The different options you choose will change the difficulty level. The welt pockets are an intermediate to advanced level sew. They are quite fiddly, but ever so satisfying! The patch pockets are far simpler and more of a beginner to advanced-beginner level technique. The rest of it is totally doable by an advanced/adventurous beginner. It’s a long but incredibly rewarding sew.
You’ll be amazed you made it at the end and so, so proud of the finished trench. The details are heirloom quality.
This is a coat you’ll keep (and wear!) for literally years to come.
