I Remember that Coat Dress. My Mom made it for herself and wore it to my Son's Christening. She made it out of Navy Blue Faille "sp" and she wore one of those little tiny "Audrey Hepburn" style hats with a sexy veil.

Not only is the design impeccible, so is your work. This is simply stunning (AND cheap?!?) My heart's aflutter over this one!

great coat...but I even more impressed with fabric on hangers in the background. So organized. My textiles are all jumbled in one bin and then some boxes.

I too love coat dresses. Yours is beautiful. And an instant stash for 99 cents. Wow, scored.

Wow! I am even more empressed with the fabric organization in the room.... (running off to buy hangers)

That's pretty good for a muslin, putting it mildly! I bet that stash's original owner would be pleased to know her fabric went to a good home!

I just have to comment again...I peeked at your fabric lot from ebay and I'm waaay jealous! What a score!!! And to think, all of that lovely fabric is going from it's dark, wet, storage to your lovely (jealous yet again) fabric stash to live!!! What a fabric've done a good deed! :)

What a beautiful job you did on this! Yours looks far better than than pattern cover.

Nice style. It definitely looks like a coat, so I think you made a good choice using it as a coat (otherwise people would be telling you to take your coat off!).

If this is the muslin, then I'm scared of the final product. This is delicious. Thanks for the warnings for the less-than-advanced. I know I'm not ready for this project yet, but you've made me want to be.

Really nice job Krystin! I am curious about the hem - the picture on the pattern envelope looks soft and unpressed. Is this addressed in the instructions?

This really is a Holly Golightly style!! You can just see Hepburn in this one.

I love your coat!! It is so gorgeous on you!! Thanks for such a great review and the inspiration.

twistedangel said...
Hi Kay, that is due to the interfacing... it sort of does that on it's own. I pressed mine down. I didn't like it like that on me. :-)

WOW. I wish I had the skill to make this, but as it is vintage, I guess I'm off the hook. Kudos!

Gorgeous dress and great review. I had more than a couple of those coat dresses back in the day. I always loved wearing them.

Oh how interesting, I never made the connection between the changed slopers and antiquated undergarments. It seems so obvious now. Gorgeous dress, very very very well done. Amazing.
