'Can't say it any plainer than that. :-)

Because I am only one person, and a self-taught artist/seamstress no less, I can't possibly do all the work it would take to guaentee that my instructions are flawless, the best there is, or even will yeild satisfactory results for you. So I hope that, instread, you'll just accept pictures of my own competed works as proof of dependablity.

If you look to your right, you'll find a link to where they have similar coats for sale at AbbyShot. Downside is, they're $500. Check out their gallery and see what you think. For some, like me, $500 is downright out of the question. (although, it probably cost me that much to develope the pattern from scratch, teach myself how to sew, and make all the keyblades to go-with, anyway) So, I'm giving you this pattern for FREE. I like the AbbyShot coats well enough, but my ultimate goal is to, someday, kick their coat's rear. And if the prototype is any indication, I believe I just might have. (there are pics posted at the bottom of this page, but that coat is not the final draft. Once I finish the final draft, and a few more wigs & keyblades, I'll take more pics and post them, too.) :-)

For now, you can contact me at:
(but once I get my official studio up & running, you'll have to contact me there, at that address)

Eventually, though I can't do it right yet, I want to set up a guestbook for site & trenchcoat feedback. I'm sorry but, not yet. *sigh*

BLOG PLAN... (note that all this stuff is not quite finished yet... links will appear as progresses is made)

PDF Files for:
  • Front-Right (main body)
  • Front-Left (main body)
  • Back-Right (main body)
  • Back-Left (main body)
  • ~ the reason there are four main-body pieces, instead of a mere two symetrical pieces, is because I'm reletively new at this, and am not sure how design something symetical that would still work right. But of course, you can still try to use just two of the pieces, but it's highly likely you will come across great complications (unless you are a professional, and absolutely know what you are doing, unlike me...) ^_^;
  • Sleves
  • Hood
  • Welt-Pockets

  1. Tutorial for Making the Beads
  2. Tutorial for Making the Drawstring and Attaching the Beads
  3. Tutorial for Folding the Hood and Inserting the Drawstring (cuz its kinda tricky with the pattern I give yeh, but whoops rear if done right) ^_~

Blog Extensions:
  • Operation: Make One! =D
  • ~ an in-depth picture gallery from when I follwed the very steps I lay before you now... (in other words: go there to watch me make a trenchcoat; I highly suggest you do that if you are having trouble making yours)
  • The Making of Ultima Weapon
  • ~ another in-depth photo gallery; this time, from when I made the Ultima Weapon keyblade... My brother says this is a very "cheap" way of doing it, but-GAWRSH!!! It still WORKS doesn't it! >.< (truuust me, not him---no, never him. muahahahaa... just kidding! lol) XD
  • The Making of SoulEater
  • ~ yet another in-depth gallery, just like the ones before it, except using a completely different method and medium from the one for Ultima... This method is better, but harder... Messier, but truely ideal! =D
