And people wonder why I sew. I wonder how they can justify spending hard earned money on disposable clothes.
I want to make this coat. I became obsessed with it while playing on Polyvore. It is from a German designer.
I love the classic lines with the slightly edgy asymmetrical hem.
And look at the epaulets ! They're beaded! I love things that are beaded.
I purchased this fabric downtown at L.A. Fabrics, the best store on Queen Street West. It is 100% wool. The lining is a bronze kasha satin. The fabric has been steam pressed at the dry cleaners. I am ready to adjust my pattern and make a muslin. Now I just new time, energy, peace, and quiet to get the work done.
Thanks for dropping by. Come back soon!
