COAT NUMBER ONE - Secret Lentil


Regular price $ 398.00 $ 348.00 Sale

Yes. It's COAT NUMBER ONE. This is the prototype for a coat I'll be making in a MULTITUDE of sizes in the very near future. This was made to fit my model, Laurel, as part of the patternmaking process. But now it can be yours. There is only one COAT NUMBER ONE.

It has: 5 buttons, 2 big pockets, rounded collar, bust, shoulder and elbow darts, some exposed frayed seams contrasting with lots of top-stitching, a full but mildly curvy shape, and is just generally adorable, if you ask me.

About the fabric: I hand printed / painted / stenciled this cotton canvas, in black and shades of gray, then over-dyed it in deep, deep plum. It says COAT NUMBER ONE, obviously, and also, here and there: SAMPLE. And if you look at the close-up picture of the collar, off to the left it says SECRET LENTIL, kind of small.

I ALSO MADE 2 BONNETS THAT MATCH THIS! If you buy the coat and either hat (provided they are still available) you can have the hat for free. Just use discount code COATNUMBERONE when you check out.

• rough size: Medium 
• actual measurements: bust measures 42, at waist it's 48, hips measure 54, length is 35 measuring down center of back, shoulder are 15 inches from seam to seam, sleeves are 23

• fabric: 100% cotton canvas, not lined
• care: dry clean (The fabric was washed and dried by machine before I made this, then the coat itself was as well, when I dyed it. So if you machine wash it, it won't shrink. But you'd probably have some fraying to trim, and it might fade a bit, so I'm saying "dry clean")
 hand made by me in my studio — one of a kind

p.s. it was SAFETY ORANGE in a previous life — I left those pics here so you can see more of the print detail from before I overdyed it.
