Here's James' wizard cape to go along with Bubba's (see archive!) at the Shambhala festival that happened in July!
He tie dyed his own liner, and I pattern placed it so it did this great electric circle on the back. Turned out becoming reversible with the vintage toggles! I put some custom pockets and embellishments for James, too. I ended up absolutely loving the tie dye!
I also did an alteration for a former school mate, Nadja http://www.nadjadesign.com/, for a coat she made for an upcoming festival as well.. She wanted to take this looser double breasted shape into something a bit more feminine.
And this is what I came up with!
A nipped in waist with a thick silk, and pleated fur (wow, was that fun for me and my machine!) and vintage buttons. She wanted to keep the length for warmth at night
I added these matching plackets with interesting white buttons too. I think the little details really do add a lot cuteness!
And this is what I am almost done with: I'll leave it a surprise..
Thanks to James and Nadja, and enjoy the rest of your summer, folks! I'm off to St. Croix in less than 2 weeks and am just absolutely stoked. stoked.
