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.

Gorgeous! I love the vintage style of this coat/dress. It's perfect on you.

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

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

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. :-)

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

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?

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.

Gorgeous coat! Excellent and informative review as usual.

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!).

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

twistedangel, you've done it again, impeccable work and fabulous coat. BTW, I love looking through your pictures for info and inspiration!!!

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! :)

wow! if this is only the muslin, i'm really eager to see a "real" one. it's awesome now, so will an original be heaven?!

What a great looking coat! I love the vintage styling!
candyo said... (6/7/07 0:21 AM) Reply
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!

This is so gorgeous. I too love all your fabric and fabric organization in the background.
sandrasdaughter said... (6/6/07 10:26 PM) Reply
Wow! I am even more empressed with the fabric organization in the room.... (running off to buy hangers)
mastdenman said... (6/6/07 10:00 PM) Reply
I too love coat dresses. Yours is beautiful. And an instant stash for 99 cents. Wow, scored.

Absolutely beautiful!

only a muslin? wow!

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.
EveS said... (6/6/07 8:22 PM) Reply
Not only is the design impeccible, so is your work. This is simply stunning (AND cheap?!?) My heart's aflutter over this one!

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.

What a lovely classic style that has withstood the test of time. Your coat is beautifully constructed. Thanks for a superb review.
