Fushia/Amber/Purple Pixie Sweatercoat
This is the 11th sweater coat I have made and this is one I made for myself. I had been planning on making myself a black/grey one, but I happened to pass this ombred sweater in a thrift store and it was love at first sight. At first I thought to keep the sweater as made, but when I tried it on, I knew it was doomed. It was very unflattering in the way that only the 1980s can be so it was destined to be remade.
I need to give credit to the originator of this beautiful style, Katwise on Etsy. Now thats out of the way, I can tell you that mine are all original from my own pattern. Many other makers have also copied Katwise, but most other makers simplify the construction. I prefer not to skimp. I take the extra time to stabilize the parts that need stability and each coat includes a 6 month check up just in case. I also like to add ornate buckles, set in pockets and hand made tassels to my version.
