Tailored Coat

I realise that it has been quite a while since i last posted, and that quite frankly isn't on. So I am sorry about that. I haven't gone away, I have just been busy this year at uni, very, very busy. 

So the fist project I had this year was tailoring. My focus was a mix of traditional country english tailoring mixed with bikers. I also developed my own print which was originality supposed to be for linings, however dew to my funds dwindling  away (this may of been in part because of my determination to use real Harris Tweed) 

 for this project i decided as it was tailoring  I had to try my hand at mens wear, and I fell in love with it!! Although we did have to design both for mens and women's wear. 

As well as developing prints I also tried my hand at dying wool. I would love to be able to create my own knitwear, but being a lefty I have found it impossible to learn how to knit (with only knowing right handed people who have tried and failed at teaching me) 

 Any way, enough of my illustrations, and lets get on with my garment:  
my Toile: A long slim fitting coat with an asymmetrical lapel so that the left side goes over the body. 
vent in the centre back. 
high pitch sleeve.
