coat "poppie"


coat "poppie"


I have made this coat, for my colleague's wedding party. It'll be in next February but it's always good to be ready in advance!
( I will need to make a dress and a shirt for my girl and husband by then, so there is not much time, anyway.)


The fabric is gorgeous indeed, and I really adore its quality. To my eyes, it shines like a golden wheat field in the late summer. Something beautiful, nothing snobbish.

I have also made a skirt out of this silk satin. After finishing the coat, I realized that one of my handmade scarves suited it very much. I had to make a skirt out of the leftover of the scarf!

  4. Oh, wow wow WOW! The coat is stunning, and the skirt is beautiful too.
    I will have to check out this anniecotton pattern company- never heard of them before...
    Can't wait to see your husband's and daughter's outfits- the Flying Squirrell family are going to be the best-dressed folks at the wedding, that's for sure.
