It would have been necessary to film me when I discovered its technical drawing: I started to jump everywhere, taking me immediately voluntary for testing it. It must be said that my current trench coat, bought at Somewhere years ago, was seriously getting tattered. Having worn it every spring and autumn for a good ten years, it was wise to sew a new one. Yes but lazy. And then I had never found the pattern who would motivate me. Until Luzerne.
But Luzerne, like every beautiful piece, timeless and sophisticated, will ask you patience and rigor. But honestly, it’s well worth the hours of work: in addition to learning many techniques, you will get a piece that will never go out of fashion, and that will have very neat finishes.
Wanting a version that goes with all my wardrobe, I opted for a beige gabardine. The only one I could find quickly contained a little spandex, that did not facilitate sewing. Be careful when you buy your fabric, that it does not contain it, because it’s not necessary.
… and there how I know that I will wear it: not buttoned, but closed fitting with the belt on my little dresses. ) (And at the same time I don’t know why I use the future in this sentence, because I wear it everyday like that, since the warmer temperatures) (except because of my sprain I’m wearing sneakers and a splint and the style is not that glamour) (but I’m always wearing my dresses, which makes my physio laugh a lot.: D)
Conclusion : Luzerne is undoubtedly my favorite pattern of this collection. It’s the trench I was waiting for, the one that sublimes and harmonizes well with my little dresses. Ultra feminine, flattering, modern and stylish. It’s a pattern who taught me a lot and who offers me a trench that has nothing to envy to the RTW ones. Congratulations to Eléonore and Camille for the styling and drafting on this pattern who will be very successful.
