Re: Carla's Opera Coat

I agree with Lizziern - some of you people need to work on your manners.
The coat is beautifully made. And it IS a coat, not meant to be worn fitted like a dress. Of course, there would be a full length dress underneath, hence the need for a little extra room. The 3/4 lenght sleeves were intended because women wore elbow length opera gloves, which was an elegant effect.
I very much enjoyed the article and the focus on the details. i would like to see more of the construction inside of couture wear as it is not something I get to see very often.
Thanks for your article.
