Have you had a sewing project that was collaboration with others? Did it turn out awesomely?
Mine did! Wonderful people helped me with this coat.
The inspiration: What Oscar did with this fabric – Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2007 RTW collection.
The pattern: you, my wonderful readers and commenters helped choose this elegant design (BurdaStyle 11/2014 #111)
The buttons: Veronica (on the left), the best button salesperson in Adelaide. It took her less than 30 seconds to pick these out for me. And there were quite a few to choose from!
The coat’s first outing: shared with other Me-Mades on Mother’s Day in Murraybridge.
Felicity is in another (!) new dress (post coming soon..), S is in Vogue, H and M in BurdaStyle. You should go and stalk their blog for more details of these three lovely dresses. I’ll post about the construction details of my coat separately. I just couldn’t resist sharing how pleased I am with this project for any longer! Thanks again to all of you. The sewing community, both on and off line, is a marvelous thing.
