Where There’s Smoke… Theres FIRE!!!

So you remember way back when, when I worked for hancock?? Well, I bought this fabric. Covered in half naked cowboys and old red pick ups-with plenty of aloe for soothing after you burn yourself with looking wink wink, Anyway, I decided to make Gertie’s easy jacket from her Butterick line and use this for the lining.

ah La:

And I’ve got this fabric, right? Its a weird sort of weave with curlique clouds all up on it. Anyway, I decided to pair the two together, because it kinda looked like steamy smoke. And where theres smoke, there’s hothothot FIREY cowboy.


Because I say so.


Here are some In Production Photos






pockets designed so whenever I stick my hand in I get a palmful of HIM.

Here is where I set in the bodice lining, and the pockets.


And  didn’t take anymore photos until just now to show the finished product lmao.

  • Beautiful coat, and fun lining. Love it. (And really want to make this coat!)

  • such clever use of lining! And the sort of flasher i would actually like to see in the park scaring (or delighting) young ladies! I love the coat too – its looks fab on you!

  • Great job on the naughtiest coat I have ever seen!

  • Love, love, love it. I have the “men at work” fabric and have had it for an age not knowing quite what to do with it. Thank you for the inspiration (I only hope I do mine as much justice as you have yours). The coat is (even without the lining) spectacular, you are one very talented young lady – all the best Michelle

  • I am so impressed with the finished product. Wow! It is beautiful and looks very professionally done. I also love the lining you chose. It gives me some ideas for a future project.

    Looks good on you.

  • This is fantastic!
    Love the silhouette, the fabrication and the lining is brilliant.
