The Forever Coat is a fully lined, double breasted wool coat with deep pockets and draped back. The dramatic shoulders and the golden buttons gives it a slight military feel, but the soft lines and the was belt still keeps it feminine. The lining is in a light turquoise color to make a contrast to the heavy dark fabric.
As the name tells you, the coat took forever to make. This is mostly because I wanted to challenge my self by making the pattern from scratch. I made about a thousand muslin before I even started cutting the real fabric. Event though I originally intended for it to be a winter coat, it is also perfect for the fall and early spring. I look forward to dressing it up and down depending on what I wear it with.
As always, my good friend Ingrid P. Eide was responsible for hair and make up, in addition to taking the pictures. Thanks!
Hope you like it :-)
