Making & Wearing a 1950s Swing Coat Angela Clayton's Costumery & Creations

Usually I start the year off with a wrap up showing the previous years projects and my thoughts on them. But Im not particularly happy with how 2017 went, and Id rather move forward with new things than write about my previous work.

So todays post is going to focus on my first project of 2018: A 1950s ensemble. This project was inspired by the glorious mid century costumes used in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Crown.

(both of which are wonderful shows if you are looking for something new to watch!)

Mrs. Maisel featured a lot of very vibrant pieces, with outfit changes between almost every scene. I was especially fond of her oversized coats, and it seemed like an appropriate season to sew one for myself!

I didnt have anything in my stash that would work, and most wools I found online were outside of my price range. But I ended up lucking out and finding a 5 yard cut of...

Niffler: revisited ikat bag


You probably remember our Niffler from a couple Christmases ago, but the photos in that post were grainy and dark and horrible. So while I had the camera out to photodocument the new Menagerie critters, I grabbed this guy out of Emily's room where he lives, and took some new photos.

To be honest, this Niffler was a fiddly sew, mainly because I was trying to get it to look as much like the thing in the movie as possible while working with whatever fabric I could find in local stores. The body, for instance, is supposed to be black but this dark brown was what was available. I used the base Menagerie template as is - for even the head, which looks very round but only because of the superthick fur (not fun to work with, but absolutely gorgeous to the touch and therefore worth every skipped stitch and almost-swear-word). 

I added padded feet to the ends of the legs and flat hands to the ends of the arms.

Just grab a big sweater, some bias tape , a few buttons and youre on your way.

Polar Bear ikat bag



I could've sworn I'd posted about this polar bear earlier, but I couldn't find any sign of it in my archives so I must not have. 

This polar bear was for Jenna's best friend at school. 

He's just the simplest possible variation on the base Menagerie pattern: two bear ears, a tiny tail and made entirely in white fur.
