Funchal Moebius by Kate Davies. I recently bought my dream coat. I have been searching for a while for an empire line, fitted coat in grey wool with no fluff or mad design features. The search was long and arduous and I found many ill fitting, hairy acrylic pretenders. Unless I was willing to spend over 3 figures, it looked like my search was in vain. By chance I wandered into the basement of a boutique I never go into, looking for something completely different...and there it was! I did a squealing happy dance right there on the floor. Miraculously there were three colours, red, charcoal grey and silver grey, in the right size, ON SALE! So I tried it on, twirled a happy twirl and guarded it with Kevin Costner OCD skills in the Bodyguard until I made it to the counter to pay. Only €67.50 too, for a 70% wool coat. It is perfection, I bought the silver grey one, and it demands a cowl that will make it shine in starry brilliance. In steps Kate with her gorgeous fair isle design, I had to drop everything and cast on asap, so that I can wear my new coat and show it off!
The best things in life are FREE. 🧡 Ugh, I love this piece. I know it will be several months until I start working on it (now that my home purchase is out of the way, pretty sure I’ll be keeping this one for myself) I still wanted to share 😊 #simplydistressed It’s in rough shape, the final product probably won’t be too far off from this. First things first - lots of TLC.
