A coat?

This will, hopefully, turn into a wonderful long Khalat coat! The outside will be denim (what else?), but I'm planning to do some playing with shibori and also lots of hand stitching on it. I might even throw some of my crazy quilting style into it. The lining will be this wonderful taffeta. Both fabrics were found at our local Fabricland for $5 a metre!!! I can't wait to get started on it. (Thanks Arlee, for sharing!!).

Oh, and before I forget, Marie has some more wonderful beaded things available for the Ride To Conquer Cancer fundraiser. Just $5 each! Check them out at her blog: and just follow the link there to Amy's Ride! I've already claimed several.

You'll be able to wear your red jumper underneath it as well.
