Making a trench coat into a hooded trench coat is one of the easier tasks available in fashion. This is because, for the most part, all you have to do is attach the two together. The materials needed are not very extensive either. However, there are a few things that you should know when looking into making a hooded trench coat and what it will entail.

  1. 1

    Cut off the upper collar of the trench coat with the fabric sheers. It is an option to leave the collar on the coat, but this often makes it more difficult to sew and the hood will not lie as it should.

  2. 2

    Spread the coat, back up, on a table or counter so you can easily access the upper area. Iron any wrinkles to make it easier to work with.

  3. 3

    Sew the hood onto the back of the trench-coat's neck. Make sure that the hood is facing the right direction so that it does not come out incorrectly. When sewing, make the stitches as small as you possibly to avoid weak stitches.

  4. 4

    Give the hood several small tugs to make sure that it does not rip when pressure is applied. When you are certain that it is firm, you are ready to use it.
