Do you remember this coat? I started it last May, which now seems like a very, very long time ago.
Anyway, I called it ‘Disruption’ because the grid of the plaid was covered with swirling and chaotic red lines.
Each line was a narrow bias tube of silk that I appliqued in place. The front, back, sides, sleeves and collar, it took a while.
An up close detail.
Something I love about this his coat pattern, it has a deep side pocket.
And the back.
So, there were lots of areas to cover which is why a coat started in May wasn’t finished until late August.
Although I am not loving our isolated, pandemic times, there is a bit of a silver lining; the opportunity for deep dives into time consuming projects.
