McCall's 5525 - Leopard Metallic

Another version of my favorite trench coat, this time in leopard metallic twill from Fabric Mart and for Meredith.

Here is the blog post from a trench made earlier for Erin and a lightweight one for Erin back in 2008

As I was making this for Meredith, I just kept smiling and smiling.  Why?  The fabric is beautiful and so her.  Also, it reminds me of my favorite aunt, she loves fabric like this and it will make her smile knowing her style is being passed onto another generation.

Here it is on the dressform:

a little shiny on the top, the fabric just bounces the light

Now off to continue on the big prom day.  The girls are so excited and so am I, dinner here for 6 couples.  Exciting day.
