My handmade collection has a new addition, a silk cocoon coat by Ralph Pink. This coat is probably the most ambitious garment I’ve ever made both technically and time-wise: it took me 10 weeks to complete.
For the execution of this coat, I used 4.5 metres of sand-washed silk as the fashion fabric, 2 metres of silk parachute for the lining and approximately 1.5 metres of silk organza for the underlining.
The creative process included hours of hand sewing. I used tailor tacks to transfer all of the pattern pieces onto the silk, catch-stitched most of the seam allowances to the silk organza and also attached the sleeves’ lining by hand.
