Japanese style coat by Zulma-san Japanese style coat by Zulma-san
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.

Photo of the skirt: [link]

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.

OMG I cut this out in 1997 and never finished. Need to make this coat. Warm enough for dead of winter in Florida.

Well, if you use some nice warm material inside, it will definitely work for winter in Florida!

You should finish it, it is worth it!

Yes I love the coat as well, the pattern was design for that type of quilting style whereas the skirt was not.

I got the pattern at a quilting store. But if you look online for Kandu Coat pattern, you should be able to find it.
I warn you this is hell of work! XD

I love those colors as well. ^.^
