The embroidered coat.
Here are a few pics of my old old embroidered coat that has returned to my closet after a long journey in other people’s homes. Needing a warmer winter coat, I completely covered a my fall coat (green poodlecloth if you must know) with freeform crewel embroidery. I really loved wearing it at the time, but now I look back and think it must have been quite outrageous. But then … those were outrageous times.
