Jacket Coat with oh so many fancies and details...an absolute labor of forest fae love
first please allow me to express my gratitude to those fae folk who inspired my journey...your rustic earthy way of using leaves, vines, wildflowers and those shiny objects you traded with the crows for...i love how your resourcefullness weaves into your garments, how irregularities are perfection in your eyes...this is created in your honor, you fae are an epiphany to the soul!
it all began with massive amounts of hemp hand dyed patchwork in all forest hues. over all the patchwork is decorative machine stitching which took days to do. the collar is layered and resembles an oak leaf crown. top sections of sleeves and bottom jacket tiers are faux suede, recycled, with more decorative stitchery added. bottom sections of sleeves are belled burgundy recycled crepe and lace. then added were vintage 1970s trims and green glass faceted Victorian and new glass seed beads. appliques on back of ivy leaves and a celtic triskele. back corset tabs are little vintage brass rings, tie is new adobe cotton twill doubled and stitched. brass bells are scattered along the bottom lime green trim handmade hand gathered by moi with recycled nylon...love the magickal jingle! antique brass and deep dusty rose early plastic/catolin buttons on the sleeves. neckline and front opening edged with beige and mossy green leafy woven tapestry ribbon doubled over. front closure is movable as it's a vintage enamel maple leaf pin in mint condition...you choose where to close the front and while not closed pin can adorn jacket where you please.
this jacket/coat has some funk...irregularities as that is how i see it should be, so be it...they are intentional. i'm not speaking of errors in my stitchery but of the flow i feel from the forest fae! the skirt is irregular as it is fuller in areas than others, just couldn't resist letting it all simply flow flow flow...
the vintage gown is not for sale as i'm going to keep it for wearing vending next season.
palette is multicolored with a glorious natural earthy hue. jacket is unlined for rustic's sake. some stitching on outside is by serger, some not. as it should be.
