..to make Vogue 2714

that's this thing. I told my boyfriend I'd make him one some day. oh ye of little faith! I'd really like to make this gaudy thing so that he'd have to wear it. it's wonderfully funny.

however, I'm a little put off by the sheer amount of fabric needed and everything.

anyways, if you're up for a challenge, I found this awhile ago and it cracked me up. it's very Cruella.

heh I actually kind of like that... I hate how puffy the sleeves are though.. that'd have to be fixed.. and I'm not a fan of long coats.. but that's fixable as well.

I love long coats. LOVE! I just can't wear them anywere, they're so awkward. i have a cloak wich is warm and black and awesome, but I've only worn it once. lucky it was from a thrift shop.

HeHeHe -- it would make one heck of a cool house coat/ robe.  Imagine swishing to breakfast in it.  Grin
*swish*I have entered the room!You may serve me breakfast now!

Lol, I'm sorry, I read over this and pictured the White Witch from Narnia doing that.

wow, that is an awsome coat and would definately be a challenge.  I wouldn't mind but don't think I have time right now.  If anyone makes it please let us know.

I don't think I would have the skills for this!  It is awesome, though, and I would rock it around my house like a diva.  But, I don't think I could pull it off wearing it out of the house.

Are you kidding, it's fabulous, it's very "breakfast of Tiffany's"

I bet if I made one I could sell it on ebay for big bucks!! It's very retro-sheek

I love this , I've been drooling after it since the first time I saw the pattern at the store, I just might take this dare, I'll grab the pattern when I go to Joann's this weekend, if nothing else I can give it to my step mother for Yule this year, lol. Might modify those sleeves a bit for her though, hehe.
