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.
pattern: anneecotton* "poppie", a short&dolman-sleeved wide coat
fabric: alpaca50/wool50 blended shaggy fabric, the color of double cream
lining: twill cupro, pale gold
2 plastic buttons and fusible interfacings (hard for collar, thick&soft for facing and hem)
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!
