French Trench

I call this dress French Trench since it is a trench dress from the magazine La Maison Victor (wich is actually Dutch…) Like my Leggings (1 & 2) and the Top of my last Christmas outfit the pattern is from LMV Autumn 2014.


I bought the fabric several years ago in Porto, Portugal. I have no idea what it is. Something synthetic with some stretch. It took me a while to gather all I needed (even if it just were 3 buttons and matching thread). But the sewing process was rather fast (the magazine has good instructions with many pictures)



The styling tip says that this dress is good for women with a small breast because of the shoulder piece. And I, as a woman with a small breast, can say that it sits well in this area. I just had to shorten it a little bit (as a woman with short legs)


We shot the pictures when I was on a work trip in spain.


And here are some behind the scenes shots. I was told to shake it off, because my pose was too stiff… so I shook it off…



I wore this dress on day 21 of Me Made May (it was the 60th wedding anniversary of my grandparents)

Here is what I wore on day 5 – 20:
