Salvatore Ferragamo Inspired Coat – Simplicity 2812
Black and white houndstooth is every where this fall. I guess we can credit Salvatore Ferragamo for that. The fabric was a gift and this fall I decided to go ahead with sewing it up. It was cut last year, but I didn’t get around to finishing it. It would be a shame to allow this one to become a UFO.
So here is a little inspiration to follow the black and white houndstooth trend.
Salvatore Ferragamo is the inspiration for this coat. The fabric was a gift from one of my blogging buddies, Marji. I used Simplicity 2812 to design the coat making a few changes for that extra pop.
