I finished this coat last month. It may have taken 3 days to completely finish.




my lining is soooo janky, but next time it’ll be better.

    Nice! Did I mention I’m looking for someone to make me a dress? And that I’m willing to travel? LOL

    But seriously. I really like the color pallet you have going on here. Wish I had skills like this.

    What’s up with the bra? Does whatever you have for pants wear panties?

    I’m having nightmares of how bad I sucked at home economics. My cooking was okay but I had and still have absolutely no sewing skills whatsoever. If I could sew though I’d sew for women. Nothing but leather, vinyl, spandex, and latex outfits. Well, unless I made some thongs on the side. Oh yeah. LOL.

    3 days? If I could get this done in 3 weeks, I’d think that an accomplishment. Would you consider that fabric to be in the suiting category or upholstery or what. I know my questions is goofy, but these are the things that keep me from committing and moving forward. Tell me about the lining as well, it looks like you could make a dress from it.

    I am assuming you put the bra on the dressform to make it more like the real you. If not, um, EW.

    That coat is maaaahvelous.
