I designed #TheShape, drafted a pattern, made 2 mini coats & want to know what you think!
Using my Judy to fit them on, I did one out of a stiff cotton Spanish drapery fabric.
The other was made out of a thin, crisp shirt weight Italian velvet flocked cotton.
Next up was a model. I wanted a mature woman, 40 years +. I couldn’t find one I could afford, except me. So, oh well!
The print on the leggings is from an original work of art by Marina, Paths of Color [Turquoise, Blue And Green] The purse is a sustainable fashion piece made from cork bought at Chartreuse Style in Toronto.
The curtain coat was finished in time to go out for a dinner.
Dressier than the last outfit, I put the coat together with a little black dress & heavy black tights. It was accessorized with a hand-made black rubber & copper wire necklace.
#TheShape is flattering, & can be cut longer. It can be made from all types of fabrics. Sleeves & collars can change, & the front closure become buttons. A solid front with zip in the back turns it into a dress. The sky’s the limit!
What do you think of #TheShape?
Should I call it #TheResa?
