When I was in Chicago I went to Fishman's . . . I found a remnant of some very lovely fabric and got a great deal on it. I decided instantly that it needed to become a coat. I knew I wanted it to be very basic. After I drafted the pattern I came to the realization that I did not have enough fabric. As a result the coat is much shorter than I had originally intended and has a couple of interesting seems. It is almost done, I am waiting on the lining fabric to show up on Monday. Until them I am thinking about the poulaine (poo-lan'), because this coat reminds me of the middle ages, and trying to decide on either the brown or the yellow buttons. What do you think? I am also accepting judgement for the fact that the center back seem does not match. . . note however, that I was lucky to even have enough fabric to cut it out.
I also went ahead and put together a little story board to inspire me on how to style this coat for the hoped for (fingers crossed) photo shoot I'm having sometime in the up and coming weeks.
. . . yeah, it's mostly shoes.
