I have made the coat. I had exactly the right amount of fabric and I did it on my own. From woe to Go it took 2 months of actual work. Although there was a lot of time in between. I haven’t shown it being worn because I Took it to be dry-cleaned and it shrunk a few sizes!!! I got such a shock. But its Still wearable when I loose a few more kilos. Apparently, it should have been agitated when washed with baby shampoo before I made the coat up. It is very unusual to make clothing from home weave.
