Lilac felted wool art coat
Circus series Wearable art coat adapted from Burda pattern 8293.
Wool yardage was machine washed and machine dried several times to become felted wool. Felting allows for the raw edges of the curvy hems.
Reflectors are scattered here and there for good walking-the-dog visibility. I wear this coat and the green coat all winter.
The back features a wild space rocket ship zooming along with a trail of reflector encrusted wake.
Buttonholes and pocket details created with techniques from Koos Van Den Akker's book Couture Collage.
Applique detail, silver center is of reflective sew-on tape.
