|In making Long Coats, I discovered that they fit me. At that point, I started imagining what a coat of my own would look like and what I would have to do in order to make it fit properly. So, I modified the men's pattern and changed the front to accommodate a bust. |
As much as I loved the original coat and the steampunk design elements, I discovered their downsides after a few years. Tired of fighting with the chains and the rivets, I modified the coat to better suit me.
