SewStylish Summer Fashion Challenge 2013

Balenciaga style top coat

I have had a pattern for a Balenciaga top coat that I have been dying to use. Balenciaga is one of my favorite designers and this loose fitting top coat is perfect for summer evenings. I stitched up the original pattern and projected image onto it. I next traced the lines of the image onto the garment. I’ve been cut the garment apart along the new lines are drawn on from the image and created a new pattern from the cut pieces. I stitched it back together in various wool remnants. I catch stitched the seam allowances down and built the button holes into some of the seam work.

    See what I get for using talk-to-text! Please for give my word fumble, sentence 5 should read:

    I then cut the garment apart along the new lines I drew on from the image and created a new pattern from the cut pieces.

    I love this coat, you did a great job. I would have never thought to use a projected image on it to make the pattern, very creative and it turned out absolutely beautiful.
