Snow! Snow, snow, snow, snow, snow!

So gang, on Saturday night it snowed.
I like it when it snows, especially if I don't HAVE to go places.
We decided to make good use of it and have a little photoshoot in the back yard, just hubby and me, as you do. 
This is the new 40s coat that I am working on. It isn't quite ready to go commercial yet, as the shoulders need some more tweaking. So I am rather nervously showing it to you... eck! 
Even though it looks double breasted, there are only two buttons that do up at the waist.  You can also wear the collar undone for a open front, wide collar look.
When I get posing I often channel one of the gorgeous girls that model for me. I think today it is Kitten von Mew inspired.


As you can see the back is really full, nipping in snugly at the waist.
Please excuse the pesky hose in the background and the fact my collar is caught up. Those are the things I normally look for when I am on a shoot and NOT being the model. I was clearly too distracted by the snow... and by standing right.
The hose will make some more annoying guest appearances in another post too.
And this pose can only be attributed to me, age 6.
Do tell me what you think of the coat.

  2. My first thought was "Maaaan, I want that coat!!" It looks so toasty and stylish. I hope it will be available in different colours. Maybe some nice navy? Or bright red? That would be awesome :)

    I'm so jealous of the snow, everyone else seems to have it (parents, boyfriend, everyone on Facebook etc) apart from me!

  30. I love the full skirt and the waist detail, but as I am short and big in the bust I wouldn't get away with the neckline/big sleeves, I prefer a deeper v front, if you see what I mean. Lovely though for those who can carry it off.
