potential new coat

So, At the Yorkshire show I bought a rather spiffy wool blanket. The intention is to make a new coat, although the cut will be carefully planner because it was a rather expensive blanket (I could have bought a very dull new coat for the same price). It will just be a very simple kimono cut, and I’ll probably line it to make it extra warm.

But now I’ve got it home I can’t decide which side I prefer.

Although it’s been suggested by certain people that a leopard skin collar would be quite stylish.

  1. Love the leopard fur lining ;P

  2. That is a gorgeous piece of fabric – and the blanket is stunning too!! ;o)

  3. I look forward to seeing it.(I stopped myself saying … But you’ve already got a coat!) Did you see the dDaily Mail article about the Bayeux Tapestry? Right up your street.

  4. Oooh, gorgeous! Could you do a reversible coat? Then you can decide each time you wear it!

  5. Wow! I like both sides, too. Either side would work. However, I don’t think you need the leopard fir collar. That’s just because the cat is there helping out. Just wear him as a scarf and it’ll look fine.
