I’ve been busy working on an unusual commission for TWO Six Frock Coats.
It’s been a few weeks work, but now I’ve finished them I thought it would be nice to share some pictures with you.
Somehow I’ve always managed to not get decent photos of the backs of my coats - which is annoying since the back almost contains more work that the front!
It also has the most time-intensive part to make - the appliqué strip which edges the back split. Each of the 14 coloured panels has to be painstakingly and accurately hand-sewn in place. Must admit this is the one part of the coat I do NOT enjoy making!
Plus it has hand-made buttons - which are not easy to make as they need to have a polished finish and look like freshly made plastic buttons.
Anyway, I hope you like them - and I hope my client does too!
