The Trenches

Miss Twiss Designs presents:

Indigenous Camouflage Trench Coat, 100% cotton. Raw edges, fully lined, pockets, yoked back with gathering for comfort in movement and lace trim along the belt.


Today, this Trench is featured in SHABYCHIC in the STYLE Section in The Ottawa Citizen, page J08. Indigenous Camouflage is the one in the upper right corner.

Here's a shot of the back.


And then, one in black, with lacey-white contrast buttons (a black one right at the belt line), and more lace trimming the hem.


After placing these items into the boutique, a few hours later they called me to inform me that the black Trench sold! To a wonderful customer who is, now officially, a collector of mine.

Edit: Hi Colleen, I created them from my very soul! They do have a timeless quality about them.

That camo trench is gorgeous. I saw some of that fabric in the store yesterday, and thought of this post.

Now I want to make a nice, sophisticated coat out of it, and wear it around. I like that we can use fabrics like that ironically. Or even just I-like-trees-lly.

The thing is, where I live (and I live in a city of over 1 million people), everyone would still come up to me and say 'oh, you hunt? what have you killed lately?' and be completely serious.

Maybe I'll make pjs.
