This is a coat that is called “Autumn Vineyard”, and is a beautiful blend of greens, purples, and oranges that capture the colors of grapes ready for harvest. It was inspired by a beautiful photo of brilliantly colored grapes ready for harvest, as shown in the last photo.This coat consists of cottons, lambswool, angora, merino wool and cashmere, so is not for the wool sensitive. Coat buttons up the front with custom kaleidoscope buttons of polymer clay. Long sleeves have thumbholes. Patchwork pocket and hem strip are colorfully coordinated to have an ombred look. Tie belt can be tied in front or back to cinch in the waistline.
This will fit a large to XL sized woman, though the mannequin who is modeling it measures 38″ in the bust. I can make minor adjustments if need be, just ask. Measurements are as follows:
Bust: 46″ to 48″
Waist: 36″ – 38″
Sleeve length: 26″
Length of bodice: 17″
Length of skirt from below waistband: 27″
All sweaters have been prewashed in my own organic soap mixture and hot water, then dried in a hot dryer for maximum shrinkage, and can safely be machine laundered on cold delicate wash. A warm or cool gentle air setting in a dryer is safe or lay flat, NEVER hang to dry. I recommend storing flat, not hanging.
Please visit my Facebook page to see dozens of pictures of other coats that I have done to get ideas for your own custom work of wearable art. Gift items can usually be ordered in time for special occasions if you let me know your deadline before you check out.
As always, I tip my elf hood to the originator of this style, Katwise.
