Halloween Wedding Coat

The coat of this outfit is BWOF 02/2008 - 117. I've loved all the versions of this that I have seen and have been wanting to make it for ages. It's almost done and I can say that I absolutely love this pattern. Was it the smartest pattern to pick when you have a tight deadline? NO! It's not particularly difficult, but it is incredibly time consuming. I just have some topstitching threads to tidy up and the snaps to attach, but I really needed a break & a coffee so here is a sneak preview. You can see the colours of the silk better in these photos - the topstitching is in the same red-brown that is shot through the silk.

Oooh gorgeous! The color is amazing, great choice!

I made this one out of wool last year, and I agree, it's not so difficult as a huge amount of time to put it together. Great job on yours!
