Haute COATure for FALL

Added Apr 21, 2011

Enschede, Nether...






This is another inspirational model from Modcloth. I printed out the model and draft the pattern myself. I can say mission accomplished. The difficult collar was made perfectly. I ordered this soft wool fabric online and I was so dissapointed with the color, I thought it may be lime/green, but resulted more like olive or army green. Love the embroidery at the edges,.
The skirt pattern is the same I used in my EXTREMELY CHIC COAT, from Burda magazine 09/2010. The bodice and collar were draft according to the model wicht by the way, cost 440 US.
The coat has side pockets, really difficult to set because of the back-skirt, wich would be cut in circle but as I wanted to apply the embroidery, I have to gathered at the sides for getting this sort of curtain – drape at the back. It can be worn fastened with the button or just loos.
Check also the buttoned strap at the left collar, it would be worn with the button or without it.
I found these beautiful coconut taupe huge buttons that fit perfectly with the color.
I am not really too keen on the color of this coat, so maybe I would sell it, it s not the type of color I am used to wear. Otherwise, I am so pleased with the outcome speciallly because I save to myself almost 500 bucks.
My husband even said it s much better thant the original at modcloth. Coat is completely linned

    WOW! I looked this up on Modcloth and you NAILED IT! In fact, you made it BETTER with your choice of fabric – the embroidery just adds that extra oomph! Fantastic!!
