Zephyr Art TN: One Nearly Finished Coat, The "Jane Austin"

Finished. I like that word. Almost finished, I guess those words are all right, too.  My thrift store blazer turned couture coat is nearly complete. Just need to affix the buttons and it will be Finished. Above is the coat in layout stage.  Ep and I lovingly refer to the two Zephyr Art coats as the "Jane Austin" and the "Swashbuckler". Jane is softly feminine. Swash is wildly feminine. And of course, we didn't plan to create coats like these, per se. We just followed the fabrics and they led us here. 

We try to pay close attention to every detail of a garment. The liner of the "Jane Austin Coat" was hand sewn into what was left of the blazer's existing liner.  

This is the coat without snaps. The rose button is a decoy, the true fasteners will be hidden inside the coat. There is to be another rose and they both need some painting to bring out the colors of the coat. 

Also, we have started a small coat. The sleeves need to be set in and it will be done. It's around a size 3.  Very cute on Dorian, though it is a girl's coat. 

This morning: 

The Bedford County Arts Council set up an art booth at the Calsonic Arena for this week's Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, TN. 

Zephyr Art has a nice spot beside artist, Becky Shelton. 

I will be manning the booth on Saturday from 10am to 7pm. Come see me. We have chairs stashed under the table for impromptu visitors!
