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....

what i would be really curious about is if we can get a tutorial or even a small idea how you went about this. Like one of the previous posters said is one of these coats possible without  a serger. Crafters should be able to make things that we see with our own creativity and unique design Smiley  

I haven't made one without a serger, but I imagine it is certainly possible with a zig-zag stitch. I would sew each piece with a straight stitch first and then zig-zag the seam allowance with a satin stitch. The most important part is treating the cut pieces gently so you don't start unraveling.

there is a pattern for these coats on etsy..... www.winterolive.etsy.com   she says in the description no serger is needed.  she also has a pattern to crochet a coat too.
