I love your coat. I guess we will have to be very careful about what we choose to wear when we're out on the town together. Why am I not amazed that you had all that fabric in your stash? Look at how much space you have gained. Oh, and Marguerite looks lovely in it too.

Well, Ann, as usual I love what you have done! I'm taking a class with Koos van den Akker this coming fall in Canada, so am looking at all his stuff! You did a great job combining fabrics. And your hat looks fabulous. I would like to know what specifically you would change about the fit? I know you said it seemed too big, but is there anything else that you would change? Would you recommend drapey fabrics for the body of the coat? Anything you can think of in terms of fabric choice would be helpful!

Ann Smith said...
Taylormade: How great to take a class with the master! I envy. The recommended fabrics are light weight woolens, lt wt denim and linen. I think these are good choices as you don't want anything heavy or turning all those scallops will be difficult. I don't think drapey is good either which is why I interfaced (with pretty strong stuff) the one drapey fabric I was using. The pattern has all the scalloped edges interfaced so, again, not too heavy fabric. About the fit... I think this looks best if the upper part is fairly closely fit to the body. If not it looks really wide across because of the scallops at the upper arms. Also the A line will look better if the fit is closer at the top. I think this should be fit to be worn over light clothing as it is not designed to be a heavy coat for warmth. Hope that answers your questions.

Oh, Ann, this is another fabulous creation. I love the sense of whimsy without clownish-ness. ANd how wonderful to already have all that fabric at home already.

Someday, Ann, I want to wander through your closet! Fabulous coat as are Dorothy and sfshaza's. And of course you had teal from the 80s and what wonderful use you have made of the fabrics. Just a stunner.

I agree about the excess room at the bust. What a fabulous pattern, though. Will use those buttonholes on other projects...

All I can say is "WOW"!!!!!!! Your coat should be on the pattern envelope as the fabric you chose is a million times better!!! Can't believe they were all in your stash. Love, love, love the combination!!

Thanks for your comment on my coat! It means even more, coming from you. I loved your version too! I looked at all the views you posted for a VERY long time, and your post made me decide to join the site and share my coat too. OH - and your hat is such a FABULOUS touch! Bravo!!
