Late 40's Swing Coat

I've been working on a great swing coat for the cold season. Well, at least I hope it will be cold. Perhaps it will get a little April. *sigh*

I wear my winter gear regardless of the temperature, suffering through the lukewarm Georgia winter in hopes that one day I will move north and actually NEED to wear my wool coat, scarf, hat and gloves. Ah well, 'tis life!

Anyway, Here are a few pictures of what I have done so far. The coat is almost completed---just needs some sleeve lining. When I'm finished with this one, I am going to make the same pattern out of fleece, with a few variations.

Enjoy the pictures!

This is the coat from the inside....note the lack of sleeve lining.

The coat on moi...Looks good so far! (bad hair day, though)

The front darts look great.

A blog of many colors

Hello! My name is Bess. I create art in many forms, and will use this blog to document the progress of some of my artistic endeavors. :D At this time, I will mainly be posting pictures and reports on garment construction/couture projects...and perhaps a few paintings. We shall see.

Please enjoy!
