That's awesome.  I love that you made it look well-worn, like it really is an old favorite coat that's lived in and comfortable, and seen many adventures.

That is an amazing coat! It makes me want to finish the various steampunk things I have started. You did a really fantastic job; I especially like the 'authentic' touches Smiley

Did you use leather for the lacing at the shoulder?

Actually, it's this narrow bronze-colored cording, which I have to braid three lengths together whenever I use it. But it's pretty awesomely steampunky. I got a giant spool of it off from ebay (like 500 yards or something ridiculous) for about $12, so I figured it's worth the crazy amount of time to braid into a thicker cord.

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.
