Description

Hand Painted, unlined coat. Hand made polymer clay buttons.

I was totally inspired by Lizajane09’s painted jacket. I used “jacquard textile paints” I ordered from Dharma Trading which were very reasonable, including shipping to Canada.

Can’t wait to wear it!

    Whoa! Amazing!

    I love the swing-y shape of this coat. Isn’t fabric painting fun? I’m so flattered you were inspired by my jacket. Now I think you’ve inspired me to get my paints back out and try something else. Awesome!

      Yay! Thanks! I had saved your blog link for awhile and kept looking at it, so finally decided to go for it. I plan to do some stencilling next with my paints!
      Thanks for the inspiration!

    I cut out the pieces and then painted them, then heat set and then sewed! Thanks!
