Yes. I purchase a new-to-me pair of shoes/ boots from e-bay and made a coat recently. Back at it apparently. Here's the latest:
|and I really like 'em|
The coat (well, jacket, actually) I made a few months ago, but never got to posting it. I really like it a lot too, but see for yourself. Made from fabric in my stash going back nearly 20 years!!!
|It's a deep, dark burgundy velvet with....|
|copper-colored organza sewn diagonally at half inch intervals, then slashed opened in between the stitched lines to reveal the velvet beneath.|
|with a tapestry/ upholstery fabric of Egyptian motifs!|
You can see details and the pattern that I deviated and derived it from on my page: Clothes from Winter.
Hey, it's not to late to join the gang at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style, so let's do it! And while I'm gadding about, let's step on over to Bella's Shoe Shine party for February. Thanks ladies for the open invite!
