Your coats appear very well sewn and are just gorgeous. I think the Caterpillar is my favorite. I love seeing everyone's different take on this style and the Alice in Wonderland themed color schemes are absolutely adorable!
To jump in on the inventor arguement, I am also pretty sure it's not Katwise so she should drop that claim if she is boasting it. I bought one (for 27 euros which was probably about $40 at the time) in Holland in 2005 to create a pattern from, and I have a family friend who sold them at the texas ren fest when i met her in the 90s. Hers are always muted tones and more often solid colors, and the hood on hers is done a little different (still long and functions as a scarf, but flat on the end rather than pointed)
These are really gorgeous coats and everyone makes them a little different. I don't think anyone should be claiming to have invented the design, but each designer can claim originality of their version as they are using their own (though similar) pattern, fabric/color scheme and stitch. I use various fabrics and do a lot of slinkier, silky nightgown stuff for robes. I also crochet my pieces together when I use sweater bits rather than a sewing machine. Ive only casually scooted about etsy upon reading this discussion, but I dont see anyone else doing either of those things.
thank you for agreeing with me about Katwise. I do get so tired of her claims. Did you see the crocheted version i mentioned was on etsy? its really cool....
