Ronneby Or Umeå,...
Part of the “Sometimes you want to be a peacock” collection that I did in the spring of 2007 when I studied pattern construction at Tillskärarakademin in Göteborg.
I wove the fabric when I studied weaving at Gamleby Folkhögskola. I had an idea about making some kind of winter coat from a handwoven fabric. So I made a wool fabric. Three years later I actually made a coat from it.
I think that of all the garment I’ve sewn, this is the one I like the best. It’s so practical and pretty and I’ve been wearing it all the time this winter and I always feel great when I do. Since I wove the fabric in Gamleby and made the coat in Göteborg I have all these memories of my friends and teachers from those two years with me when I’m wearing the coat too.
