Salut chéries! I am submitting my portfolio tomorrow and I finished my coat the other day. It doesn’t have a lining in it yet and also I haven’t added the belt yet. It’s a little different from my original design, a little smoother but I love it! My mom is modelling it here.
As I said before I used a Vogue pattern and I found it was pretty good, but a little confusing at times. However it was altogether pretty easy to follow. The reason it’s not as full around the bottom as I had imagined is because I found that anytime I tried to adjust it too much from the pattern it started to not look right. I think it’s because there are so many panels and seams that everything just starts to bunch and not look right. So I’ll have to keep playing with it and working on it to get the fit just right. I’m not giving up on my original design just yet so I will keep you updated!
