Here it is, the finished coat in all its glory!


Shot of the hand painted lining... You'll see another post on the blouse and the trousers!


The hand-distressed leather hinges, with snaps--and the curved welt pockets!


Leather flying yoke... If I could change anything, I would move the yoke to fit the back neck better! Alas, once snaps are set, they are set forever.


And I don't think I could possibly have anything more to say about this coat, except: runway photos from our fashion show!


(Above two photos taken by Hannah Riordan.)

I'm never modeling again. I was so nervous! But I think I did okay--I didn't fall, at least! I think the best part of looking at runway pictures is seeing people's reactions. Too funny.

And this was me, after the shows were all done, with my model & wonderful friend, Cassie! Perhaps you remember her from last year? This is a preview of things to come--I'll do another post on her outfit! It's a goodie.

  3. This looks amazing. I love the distressed leather accents and the curved pockets. Your hard work definitely paid off.



I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
