The line of that coat is absolutely lovely! I'm very tempted to see about putting together a pattern inspired from it!

Hey its really an amazing post, I like the design you have made and I like velvet designs a lot. Thanks for showing it here...

This piece is strikingly similar to a piece we have in the textile and fashion arts collection at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. It would be fascinating to compare the construction of the two works.


What a beautiful coat! Thank you for posting.

Wow! Petra, thanks so much for posting the link to the dress in the IMA collection. They are VERY similar, especially the sleeves. If you ever visit Los Angeles, please get in touch with us and stop by the museum!

Catx, if you do decide to make a version of this coat, let us know! Be sure to take a look at the IMA dress too; you might have a difficult time deciding which one to replicate!
