For my final look I began with the fabric for the coat, (the whole coat is from my stash) and it is cotton velvet in 3 different patterns from the same line.
The body of the coat has an exposed red metal separating zip for the front closure, and there are exposed zips that close the side pockets. (the pockets are lined in a purple cotton from the same fabric line as the velvet, so it coordinates.)
|I thought this picture was funny, (she's stretching her cheek muscles out from smiling too much) It's not all glamour in the modeling world!|
The hood is fur edged, (and makes Emmie call this her fancy Eskimo coat)
Since she couldn't just wander around in a coat, there had to be an outfit to go with my look!
I made a pair of dark stretch jeans, in a straight leg.
For the shirt, I found the most amazing cotton fabric, that had all the same colors as the coat, but with a black base. (I LOVE the print on this fabric, it's abstract, but floral, and it is so perfect for the bohemian vibe!) I made a fitted high waisted bodice, with a loose lower tunic length bottom, that is gathered into the bodice.
There are short, set in sleeves, that give her arm coverage, but also hint at the weather warming up for spring.
I really hope that you like my signature look, as I would like to have earned your vote!!! Please hop on over to Project Run and Play and vote for your favorite look by 10 pm Sunday night MST. Thanks so much everyone for keeping up with my progress in this competition; I have had such amazing support from so many great people! (Did I remember to say please, PLEASE, PLEASE, go vote?)
As a side note, we took Emmie's pictures at a local mall here in Korea, it was the most random place I have ever seen in terms of its decoration! Here is a Pororo mural, (Pororo is like the Korean Micky Mouse, he's the Ambassador of children, and a pretty big deal; he is on EVERYTHING.)
Glass sand art ceilings.
For most of the pictures, the poor thing had an audience of people watching her, and she was a terribly good sport still posing for me! (she had a sweet old lady that kept asking her "mama, baby?" and pointing at the two of us, I kept saying "yes" in Korean, and English, but she wasn't sure we understood what she meant. I asked Paul to tell her in Korean (he's taking classes through the Air Force) and all he could remember to say to her was "This is my wife, and this is my daughter." so I guess he sort of answered her question!)
