Q&A with Northwoods Design

ByTheShor10898890 asked:
Love what you did here to the coat . Did you alter the length to get the silk for the flowers? Was this online class helpful ? Great looking!!!!!
Northwoods Design answered:
Gosh! Thank you! Yes, that is is exactly what I did. Shortening it updated the coat just enough and seemed to highlight the texture of the external fabric. This class was one of the first that I watched here on Craftsy and I enjoyed it so much. It empowered me to make gifts for others that became focal points in their living rooms (and a couple of things for myself).
