Makeup was optional this particular day....
I made this coat quite a few years ago, I learned many things along the way...
These over the knee socks are so fun!
Hat: Stampede vendor
Over The Knee Socks: Winners
Things I learnt back when I made this coat:
1) Bound buttonholes - Poor Natasha tried to explain this to me multiple times....
2) Glue - A bad idea with fabric..... Yes, yes I know many people never have any trouble, but I in a state of madness over did it and then ended up with one particular buttonhole looking much grayer than the others.
3) Interlining for warmth - A good idea, however less is more and two layers of warm and natural throughout an entire coat is crazy. Not to mention very difficult to move in. Just to make is clear this coat has four layers; 1 layer of mixed fiber boucle type fabric, 2 layers of warm and natural, and 1 layer of satin as the lining. I will say that this is a very warm coat.
Every project teaches me something, but looking back at this project always cracks me up!
