Go ahead and say it: A Coat of Many Colors. Yes!

I started out with a size Petite Medium cotton jacket with sequins and plenty of pizazz. I brought the waistline in with a few pleats on the back and took in the side seams to give it a closer fit. Add the flashy skirt made out of t-shirts (one with sequins) and a patchwork band... plus three other coordinating bands and WOW! You have one colorful coat. Closure: Hand painted buttons and a tie at the waist .

The jacket measures 38 at the bust and 34" at the waist for a shaped fit but not tight. The hemline is twenty feet in circumference. Skirt is 31" long from the waistline, which starts at the bottom of the band.

Serged seams are on the outside with extreme care given to quality in every detail.

Sleeve length is for a size petite. If you need them longer, I can make that happen. You can see the proportion of the sleeve length in the photo of me wearing the coat. For a regular sleeve length, I would add another 2".

Although every item but the jacket has been machine washed and dried, the care label on the jacket said Dry Clean Only and that is my recommendation.
