embroidered coat, embroidered bag, and five minute frock

I have not posted in a while...I had been making an Irish dance dress, and then changing jobs but I did finish a few things

the first is I embroidered this coat - which I am very pleased with and timed it perfectly for winter here



The second was a bag I embroidered - its a vintage vinyl box clasp bag and the lining was shredded so I relined and embroidered



and the third was a five minute sew - it was a long a-line skirt, so I cut some armholes, hemmed them, and have worn it a lot since - it drapes well, and the waistband makes a rather angular boatneck.



The coat I detailed in my blog www.upsew.ie, I will post info on the other two in the next while.....

What pretty embroidery you did. I love vintage bags. The red coat is really beautiful too. The skirt/dress looks very nice on you. You have been busy and you did some great work.
