Gypsy coat made from recycled sweaters in greeny-blue, grey & deep red lambswool with some re-purposed black velvet from a vintage dress. The bodice is a darker greeny-blue in reality, it looks a little too greyish in the pics. There are 4 ornate metal clasps at the front & a sexy corset styled tie at the back to cinch in the waist. Flared sleeves and an elegant elf-hood complete the mischievous look : )

Size XL - XXL UK 20-22 US 18-20

Chest 44" - 48"
Waist 44" max, can be made smaller with corset tie.
Sleeves 23" underarm to cuff, can be altered free of charge upon request
Length 37" from nape of neck to hem at back

for reference modle is size UK12, 5' 4" tall

I spend many hours each week trawling through our local charity shops choosing the best pieces of clothing to reconstruct. All sweaters are washed & dried before I begin each creation to prevent further shrinkage, although further shrinking may occur with wool, so handwashing is recommended, as is drying flat, to ensure your garment lasts for many years to come. All seams are straight-stitched, overlocked/serged, and then top stitched again where needed - made with the utmost attention to detail and made to last! With correct care this creation should last you many years of adventuring. Slight irregularities & the odd wonky seam are the nature of these garments and add to their character, all of my creations evolve the moment I start to create, I never use a pattern, each one is totally unique. Should any threads come loose then please just cut them off, please do not pull. All ends have been tightly finished off so nothing will unravel or fray.

If you have any further questions then please just drop me a convo. I am always happy to adjust something for you before shipping, if it's possible. Just ask :)

Thanks for stopping by my shop!

Love & light
