well, it’s done and ready to wear! i actually finished this coat on thanksgiving day (really – i was sitting at the table, furiously tacking down the red lace hem while my mom was reheating the honeybaked ham ), but wasn’t able to get any pictures until this past weekend. my pictures are terrible but they are better than not having any pictures!
more after the cut!
as i’ve previously mentioned, the red lace @ the bottom is because there was a discrepancy with the pattern so the lining & shell fabric did not match up at the bottom. i couldn’t find any turquoise or silver lace, so i went with a contrast! i love red and turquoise!
i would tally up the total amount $$$ i spent on the this coat, but i honestly don’t really want to know. i’d guess around $250, though. not to mention hours and hours of sewing & hand sewing and PADSTITCHING!!
but it was all worth it, y/y?
