I have been working on this coat for several years now. Most of the time was spent trying to find the fabrics and then combining them together in a way that I liked.
The pattern in itself is simple enough but with 30 different fabrics and so many pieces it is very time consuming. It is like a quilt but shaped into a coat. ^.^ The pattern is called Kandu coat.
I chose blue like the sky and orange/yellow like the sun. I wanted something bright and yet elegant. All the fabrics have gold in them which makes it look precious. ^.^
I like the result a lot although the cut which is very straight and kimono-like might not the best with the skirt.

100 theme challenge: 49 - Stripes as the construction of the coat requires you to cut MANY stripes of fabric and muslin and then sew them together to create the clothing.
Hope you like it.
