Purple Plaid Mohair Coat by Yolanda

January 15, 2010 by Britex Fabrics 5 comment(s)

This fabulous and fuzzy purple plaid mohair coat was made by Yolanda. The coat pattern was self-drafted and she also made covered buttons. You can see her skill as a seamstress in the meticulous matching of the plaids. Douglas from Britex's first floor was instrumental in assisting in her fabric choice. Yolanda has sewn for folks in Hollywood (including actress Doris Day) and Disney. If you look carefully in Disneyland’s Small World exhibit, you will see her handiwork!

    Our grandmother makes beautiful things to wear. She is so talented. But Mohair and creme puffs don't mix well. Just ask Nanny.

    Nice coat.
    I had to be in parades, park tours, and give autographs to Rose Bowl football players in December, and all I had was a yellow dress and blue cape Yolanda made for me, but never had a coat that warm! Would have been nice.
