The coat is finished, and today was the fashion show. I asked the lovely Elaine of Smith's Furnishings to take pictures, and I managed to be making a silly face in most of them. I got a lot of questions and compliments on the coat as well as my performance - I was pretty much smiling nervously the entire time, but apparently I picked up some fierceness from watching the models on Project Runway because my awkward walk-walk-stop-smile-turn technique fooled people into thinking I knew what I was doing.
Right before the fashion show. I was pretty nervous, because I know where all of the imperfections are, even if no one else can see them. The shoulder pads are pinned in temporarily, and I think I'm going to make some that fit the shape and give the shoulders a little more structure.
I've talked so much about the coat today that I'm not even sure what else to say, except that I'm pretty proud of it, and glad that it's finished so I can focus on classes... which start tomorrow, eek!
