A coat I made for spring, but couldn’t resist a photo shoot the rare snowfall that came to Texas. So I might have been freezing for a bit, but with such a pretty coat it was well worth it. I used Vlisco’s Hommage l’Art wax fabric for this, and I ended up using all six yards because I was quite picky with the print placement. It is lined with rayon bemberg, which I had a mini sprayathon going on with the spray stabilizer – but it made the rayon so much easier to work with.
