Description

So love this fabric because of its texture, the pattern on it and how it would be perfect for the coat that I design. Had this design for a while and was extremely happy I found this fabric to be able to bring it to reality.

For the base of the style I use M6741 (See style shown). I am a fanatic for bows so I wanted the coat to have a big bow as the focal point. The bow is what makes the design unique with a signature look.

The design of the coat is fitted and flared with princess seams, side front pockets, high neckline, cap sleeves and it is completely lined. The front have concealed button closure with 10 buttons of size 3/4" . An oversized bow is placed at the first button and is attached through a loop opening. The bow can be removed if so desired.

Totally pleased with the look and I was looking royal as ever :-) Thanks for looking

    One of your best dresses, kisses. All is in harmony here: the fabric pattern, the design of the dress, the balance – the right length and silhouette and a fresh colour that suits you. Very nice.
