another VINTAGE KITTY, LILY HANNAH creation..!
beautiful coat deconstructed and upcycled.. gorgeous....
this devine coat is gorgeous.. one of a kind that Im doing this season.. keep an eye out for more coats to come..
created from a super stretch denim jacket bodice, and a beautiful vintage cross stitched tablecloth, one of the most stunning Ive ever seen..!
Ive cropped the jacket and added the circular cloth to create a highwaisted coat, very victorian styled with blousey sleeves created from the most succulent vintage paisley hot pink satin .. just devine..
loads of antique and vintage hand stitched needlework adorn the front and back.. beautiful laces, and bits and pieces rescued from days gone by, some lovely satin roses, and loads of other lovely goodies,... you name it, its on this beautiful coat.. Ive stitched one of my Vintage Kitty signature rose girl patches on the back, and some more gorgeous lacey bits and mother of pearl buttons, roses add more detail everywhere..
the sleeves are full length, with a balloon effect, the denim cuffs are fitted with vintage crochet scraps and satin roses.. the sleeves themselves are made from beautiful vintage satin remants.. hot pink paisley that matches the gorgeous bold cross stitch roses on the skirt part.. lots of deconstructed raw edges and frayed denim give this coat a worn out decadent look.. romantic faded glory that I love... twisted tales entwined with vintage needlework and fine embroidered lace and crochet..as the same with all my coats, they always look much better on a real person than on my armless mannequin..! You will have to close your eyes and use your imagination..! you will not be disappointed..!
the bottom skirty part of the coat is a full circle.. bustled up with mother of pearl buttons to create such a decadent look.. too gorgeous for words.. this coat has attitude..!! where it joins onto the bodice there is a casing of hand dyed guipere lace threaded with a dusky pink crushed velvet ribbon tie.... pull tighter if you want to wear it with a nipped in high waist look..
Ive added a slinky lining to the skirty part of this coat, its shorter than the outer layer and it has a gorgeous hand dyed heavy guipere lace on the hem which peeps down lower than the hemline of the coat in places due to the uneven hemline of the bustley-ness.. just for an added bit of gorgeousness.. you cant really see it in the pics, but I thought Id mention it , its not to have that extra bit of substance...
a truely gorgeous coat, too much detail to list..!
I estimate this coat to fit a LARGE to XL .. the mannequin its on is about a size 12/14 with C cup, so you can see the coat is slightly loose on her, but would fit with layers .. but will stretch to a larger size too.. the stretchy bodice means it will fit a nice range of sizes..
Please check the measurements carefully as I dont refund for the garment not fitting.. I try my best to list very accurate measurements..
underarm to underarm across the front (bust) is 22 inches (56cm) there is stretch in this fabric, its got quite good give to it.. nice stretch denim..
at point where bodice meets skirty part of coat (high waisted) 21 inches (53.5cm)
shoulder to high waist of bodice 16 inches (40.5cm)
shoulder to hem, a gorgeously long 50inches (127cm) approximately , however its up and down due to the bustly-ness.. about 4 inches either way roughly.. see pics..
I find a good way to check if it will fit , is to compare the measurements to something else you already own , by measuring the item unstretched and laying flat... thats much easier than trying to measure ourselves and getting it right..!
*washing instructions.., hand wash in cold and lay flat to dry or on a wide hanger....
*this garment has vintage and hand dyed components.. please wear gently.. imperfections, tiny marks or repairs, if any are part of the charm of wearing beautiful re-created garments.. please know that I would not offer anything that I wouldnt wear myself
