Chocolate and hot pink glen plaid coatdress

When my daughter was getting married we came across this chocolate and hot pink glen plaid suit material.  She immediately knew this would be a dress she needed come fall. She was to wear it to her rehearsal dinner.  When I came across the Simplicity contest I knew this would be a great time to enter my first contest. I used Simplicity pattern 2996 from the Threads collection. I took the waist off and made it an open front coat dress. The collar and cuffs are hot pink silk dupioni with multiple rows of stitching. Those were done on my Bernina 630.I then found some organza leopard ribbon and gathered it, and inserted it around the collar and cuffs. The china silk lining was embroidered with her initial in it and a design from mu OESD design collection. Needless to say, the dress was in New York when it was time for her wedding but she forgave me when I won first place in the dress division.

    This is truly a creative work of art! I hope you don’t mind if I try and recreate this gorgeous project for my own daughter-in-law. This creation is way too beautiful to not try and do myself (in different colors). Julie in Texas

    What a fabulous dress! I'm so impressed with the workmanship. You really did an amazing job, so congratulations. Love all the details.

    Thanks for the encourougment. Simplicity has the rights to use pictures from the 2008 contest. I will go back and see if I can post any better close up pictures. I am still new to this and have trouble posting the pictures. My daughter gets lots of compliments when she wears this and yes she loves fashion. She can sew but not with the same intensity. It is easier for mom to do it. I hope to post more of my creations as I get better at it. Thanks again.

    This is jaw-dropping gorgeous! This is truly a work of art from the heart. I want to see more of it in close-up detail. Have you blogged about it? Thank you for sharing this with us. Lucky daughter to get to wear this. Does she share your love for sewing? Simplicity should see this, it would surely make a great advert for them...
