It's sumptous, whimsy, and unique Jacket/Coat
with a lot of details, colors and patterns.
Wearable art. OOAK.

1000 stitches, 5 appliques; mashine sewing,
felting, crocheting, knitting, embroidering
and beading were involved
to create this COAT.

Handcrafted from repurposed wool, cashmere
and angora sweaters. They were washed
several times to achieve felted look and bring
desired density to the knits.
Seams of the coat will never unravel!

The waist cinches in the back with a corset lacing,
croched from novelty yarns.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Barbara Birute
