Museum Coat

Added Mar 2, 2010

Birmingham, Alab...






I called this the Museum Coat because I think it is the perfect coat to wear for a day at the museum. The pattern is Vogue 8465 out of an orange boucle with purple red and white plaid. I lined it with bridal satin which I think is a little to stiff. I would like the skirt to drape and swing more. The lining color is actually purple, not blue. The fringe trim around the collar is actually the selvage edge that I cut off and inserted like piping.

Material Notes

Orange plaid from Hancocks, purple lining from Joann, Vogue 8465 pattern.




Garment Type
Classic, Victorian
