Here is THE coat.
I am pleased to debut my newest nuno-felt coat. It is sheer printed silk (vintage sari silk) embellished with merino wool, yarn and other silks, to make a dramatic softly draped spring coat.
And for you knitters, the teal shell I have on under this wonder, is my next pattern... to be posted by the weekend (I hope). I need some time with my calculator, to create the pattern in lots of sizes. :)
You can see how sheer some of the coat is. The upper back and front is a bit less sheer, but the front opening is mostly a sheer scarf effect, and the whole lower half is more silk than wool, creating a flowing edge to the coat.
I have posted it on ETSY, with an offer to custom make one for YOU. Your colours, your size, truly one of a kind if we work together!
