Autumn Coat

Tokyo’s weather is still amazing… sunshine, blue sky and 21*C But I’m getting prepared for cooler days and just finished this Autumn coat. It’s a simple swinging A line, just end above the knees, closes with one button and — what I most love: the widely shaped collar. Smooth A-line and vivid lining It’s a super convenient thing to jump on my bicycle with sneakers or (to give a more female impression) to wear it with a mini-dress, tights and high heels.

Ideas for Summer 2014 Vol.4

The top is a crushed polyester, but very light and airy. As an extra accent I finished the V-neck collar with a black lace and a golden bias tape, some feathers and a golden button. I loved the mosaic pattern and made a skirt in the same color arrangement: blue, red, white, gold, purple and lavender. I made it from silk wool sample panels. Underneath is a fine cotton lining.
