Hiya, I’ve been (slowly) getting on with my 1920s coccoon coat, hampered only by Ofsted (school inspectors), eczema (on my hands, how cruel for an artist?), and a lack of Betty (my mannequin). I eventually decided to use the Folkwear Poiret coat which had been discontinued but I found one on good old Ebay. I had a specific idea of how it would look:


La Poiret Cocoon Coat


Anyway, I’ve now finished a toile, adjusted from the original pattern, which I hope to transfer to paper on Wednesday, and start cutting out my ACTUAL coat. Aargh!

Adjustments to right hand side

More pics and waffling on over here.

Cheers guys x
PS. I’m gonna be extra good, and wash my fabric first too
