30's Coat



Here are some preliminary snaps of that 30's Parisienne coat from Decades of Style.
The collar looks great here ( it's the stretch velvet one; I haven't had time to sew in the new Persian lamb velvet one) but it looks droopy when worn. I like how the strange little pintucks in the sleeves came out; they cause the sleeves to bell out in a very pretty way. I'll fix the collar and take some snaps of my friend JoAnn wearing it...

Wow, what an amazing coat! I just might have to make one for myself! Since I live a really casual life I'm wondering how this would look with pants? Hmmm. Your taste is exquisite - I think I have that fabric in my stash. :-)

Did you ever finish this coat? It is beautiful! I noticed on the pattern that there are pin tucks or lines or something on the body of the coat...is that correct? Did you do that to the coat too? Thanks! I would love to see the finished garment!
