a coat for violet

Late last night I had a vision to do this old velour red bedspread as a coat for Violet. Im talking late, late.
One of my favourite colour combinations will always remain cherry red and aqua blue.
Im going to sneakily wrap it and address it to her and pop it in the letterbox out the front for mum to find when she gets home.

I was forced to add an embellishment of extra velvet ribbon to the hood inner to cover over the join because the batting of the bedspread showed but I adore the over-the-topness of having the velvet on velour.
Anyhow I just finished sewing the buttons on and thought id show you.

This is such a beautiful coat ... I'm sure the little person wearing it will just look gorgeous .... you have done a wonderful job.

Just beautiful Wendy! I, too, am a big fan of the cherry red & aqua colour combo and in this coat, it just looks gorgeous. x

I love those colours too - gorgeous combination! Just lovely! Mornington is my old stomping ground until our move in January - the main street market was a regular stroll! Enjoy!
