Description

This is the first item (sample) in my new Fall Outerwear 2009 line. I wanted something extravagant to snuggle into while I fly around the glassy streets of NYC.

The pattern is my own, based on the silhouette that Paul Poiret made popular in the beginning of the 20th c. It has batwing sleeves and a collar that can hook to stand up around the chin, or unhook to spread out over the shoulders.

The outer fabric is this amazing greek-statue damask that I found at a neighborhood fabric store in the east village. It’s my favorite fabric IN THE WORLD and I wish I’d bought the whole bolt. It’s completely lined in a really thick faux sheep skin, so it really feels like you’re wearing a sleeping bag (in the best possible way).

It closes up the front with three buttons and loops.
