Gorgeous wool coat

Things turn round and round, starting with Nancy at sewwest.blogspot receiving the Creativ Blogger Award, and kindly nominating me, whereby I've been introduced to her wonderful sewing blog, and some others, which then led me to the Slap-dash-sewist and her exploits to finish her wool coat to wear to Obama's inauguration ceremony. (My life's story, even my wedding dress was made at the eleventh hour!) And then I remembered this wonderful picture taken in the National Portrait Gallery in London, of a handmade coat, cinched with a wide belt to set the full skirt sailing, and all her eclectic accessories of an over sized brooch and bag, and metallic shoes. Isn't it inspiring...hmm, I wonder what I'm adding to my To-Sew-List?
