This tester version of our forthcoming Princess Coat pattern from @thejennigirl is jaw-droppingly gorgeous! I love how she ran with the Lilli Ann inspiration. Thank you for testing and for your exquisite work @thejennigirl. #theprincesscoat 💜💜💜 #Repost @thejennigirl with @get_repost

I desperately wanted snow for these images, alas, I was lucky we got down into the 40s, lol
I was incredibly lucky (and very excited) to be chosen to test @gertie18’s latest Charm Pattern, the Princess Coat, the epic ultimate dream of a princess coat pattern 💜 
I chose the make this test coat using the full skirt, pattern sleeves, and notched collar. I used this incredible purple angora cashmere coating from @bandjfabrics, that I purchased last October during my NYC fabric shopping trip and Beacon Sewing Retreat with Gertie. I also purchased the velour leopard print trim while in NYC, though the shoppe name slips my mind, and I’m so glad I purchased 10 yards of it! It is fully underlined with wool thermal batting, and lined with a synthetic blend leopard print lining. It feels like I’m wearing a cozy blanket! I used cotton fusible interfacing throughout the bodice, collar & sleeves. I don’t often get the opportunity to go all out on a garment like this, but I took the chance and spared no expense, and it’s so worth it! 
I styled my coat with vintage 1940’s gloves, hat and New Look dress, @whatkatiediduk black seamed Cuban heeled retro stocking, and a favorite pair of @irregularchoice t-straps I’ve had for 5 or 6 years. 
I think I’ll make the cropped peplum with bell sleeves next!
