Art by Frances Taylor

Koos inspired coat

This light-weight coat was made in response to one of the annual challenges of our ArtWear Ottawa group - inspired by a designer. I made this coat using the techniques of Koos van den Akker - applique and bias. I included some of leaf shapes he used so frequently in his work. This coat would be suitable to wear for a cool evening out or shopping on a spring or fall day. It hangs below the knee, and is sized medium to large. The design is based on the "bog" coat pattern (look it up - the design has an interesting history).
