Custom Women’s Overcoats

There is no doubt that we make the finest and most unique custom women’s overcoats that can be found anywhere, and each year we make coats for clients all around the world.

Women’s Gabardine Trench

The process starts with a sketch.

When we get an email from a client about having a coat made, the first step is to trade a couple emails to discuss the style, the weather where you live, and the durability and hand of various materials that we can mail to you to feel in person.

The style can be anything from a traditional trench coat to a caped inverness coat.  Anything from an asymmetrical 1920s style coat to something with a bit of 1960s mod styling.

1920s Style Asymmetrical Coat

For materials, we can use a cotton gabardine rainwear material, a handwoven Harris tweed, a heavy wool melton, a napped cashmere fabric or even a fur or a durable and luxurious faux fur (like the materials for the black coat pictured).

Once we have a design and are in the process of working through finding the perfect fabric, we will have you send a few measurements that you take at home (we can mail you a tape if you need one).

Then, depending on the style, we can also make an optional  “muslin” of the piece.  This is a cotton mock-up that we mail to you to try on.  You send us digital pics and your comments and we can revise the style as much as needed to get exactly the look you want.

Because we still do everything the traditional way and make each coat from start to finish here in our studio in Denver, Colorado, we can get exactly the fit and the style you want, no matter where you are or how different your body is from the clothing that is usually found in the shops.

If you would like to get started on a custom coat, just contact us and we can start working on some sketches.

Although we are called “Denver Dressmakers,” we are quickly becoming a brand that is best known for our custom tailored suits and outerwear for women.

We also run the website www.DenverBespoke.com for men, and have tons of experience crafting highly technical menswear-style garments from some of the finest fabrics in the world.

When you combine this with our ability to actually fit curvier women, you get coats that look incredible and last a lifetime.

We love to make our coats from fabrics that are literally twice as heavy as the cheap fabrics used for department store coats.  This makes for a coat that will actually keep you warm as well.

Recently our clients have been loving the classic styles of the mid-twentieth century trench coat, but with some feminine twists.

Most of the styles pictured feature either a ruched back or back box pleats for a beautifully flared skirt that is comfortable when walking.il_fullxfull.689172464_t8ul

The jewel toned wine and burgundy coats are both made from a heavy weight wool melton fabric and both feature detachable hoods that button on and off.

The darker wine colored coat has a unique fit with top-stitched seams and a high waistline.

Classic Double Breasted Overcoat with Welt Pockets

These coats are both inspired by the awesome coat that Sherlock Holmes wears in the BBC series Sherlock and feature classic English coat details like an upper back pleat and box pleats in the skirt (as on the grey and black coat).

The grey coat features angled welt pockets and a classic double-breasted style.
