By all these lovely tokens September days are here, with summer's best of weather and autumn's best of cheer. But soon rain will start to fall, so as the leaves and I will hop into my red coat... Honestly, that is the only thing I am looking forward to- wearing my vintage inspired custom made red coat.
We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer's wreckage. We will welcome summer's ghost... So I took advantage of the warm day and took photos to introduce another made to measure piece that I have.
This coat is not new, I has been made 2 years ago so I don't exactly remember the details, I am sorry.
There was no specific pattern, I just told my seamstress that I want a peter pan collar, lightly puffed shoulders and that is open from the waist to hem to create volume so I can wear it on my swing skirts.
Things gone wrong when she measured me and told me that I need two and a half meter fabric, so when I was buying it I had a misunderstanding with a salesgirl and got twice as much material than I needed.
So since the material is here I mind as well use it, so I have decided to add a luxurious but detachable hood and make coat a little longer. It is made out of velours and has light padding so I can wear it when it is really cold.
The only flaw is that it doesn’t have pockets but I have left with a good amounts of fabric so maybe in the future I decide to give it a makeover... Oh, and faux fur sounds nice.
I am very grateful that I have a wonderful seamstress who makes all my ideas come to life :)
