I’ve recently finished this tailcoat. How you can see, I added two coats of arms of my hometown Cologne. In Germany we are the champions of celebrating carnival (weahhhhhhh) and in this particular “season”, every single “Cologner” wants to wear something represents her or his home. So this tailcoat was born.
I’m sorry for not having nicer pictures of the backside… but by knowing me, you know, that I’m not the number one of taking photos. :(
Collar and lining are completely sewn in by hand.
Pattern by me.
Wool with 2% elastane
Lining acetate arrg
