You can read more about it here.
Anyway, after a week of doing little else except working on it, it's done. I may go back and do something with the blank orange panels at some point, but for now, I'm pleased having them this way. I may also add some sort of closure, some buttons and some jersey pull loops, but I don't know that I would ever wear it buttoned, so I'm letting that wait for now, as well.
So here it is, my Peter Max Coat:
The edges are all beaded; that's what I did all day yesterday.
Now I've got to start something new, something that will be a lot easier on the thumb joint so it can recover. (It's arthritis, so it's good to know this is not the kind of project I want to do a lot of in the future.)
I'm very pleased with it and can't wait to wear it, like, you know: everywhere. Out, and around the house, and in the studio, and to sleep in. All this work? I may live in this puppy for the rest of my life.
Thanks for coming by! XO
