That looks so pretty! Very Happy Amadalia When do we see you wear it?

While the pattern on the cloak may look off right now, I absolutely love the look of the fabric you used for the cloak. (I also have a thing for diamond patterns and love diamond piper weave).

Have fun at the premier. Very Happy

It's gorgeous and the material looks so nice. If you ever find a better one, and it's possible to order online please give me a shout out, I think most of us are after a V2 of the coat in better fabric.

The only thing I would change for a V2 would probably be to make the sleeves a bit shorter. It looks like your sleeves end at around the knee, while I think in the reference photos it looks like they end at the top of the thigh. Still it's hard to judge something on a dress form.

Thank you, and will do (fabric)!

The sleeves are on my list of things to adjust. They are a bit longer than I would like. Should be a rather easy fix, as I still have some finish work left to do on the sleeves.

Looks good! Can't wait to see your photos! I wore mine last night and loved it. Mine's probably version 1 as well -- my coat fabric is not quite right (you got a good find there) and after seeing the movie there's a few other details. Did you get the jet set knit from Joanne's? Crazy that it costs so much more than the white...but I got an amazing deal on it in October when I special ordered it -- $3.98 per yard!! I don't even know how -- I had a 50% off coupon, but I guess there was some other deal going on. So I bought 10 yards! Smile

Sometime soon I'll get my WIP posted up here. Though I don't have as many pictures the farther along I got, because I was frantically trying to finish by yesterday (12/14)!
