Anthropologizing: Intelligencer Coat

Wednesday, April 4, 2012


Good evening, mah dears! 
It's been months since you voted for the Intelligencer Sweatercoat to be my next Anthropologizing project. I put it off because I wanted a spring version of the jacket since I live in the Midwest where sweatercoats are practically useless against the weather.  Besides, I really wanted a project to use the cutout fabric I created and thought the detailing on the collar and cuffs made this the perfect option.


Based on the reviews I read online about the drape, I gave the bottom of my jacket a more definitive shape with less fullness, which I really like because I can leave it hanging open more like a swing coat from the1960's without it looking like a complete sack. HA.


Can't tell you how ecstatic I am about this floral cutout detailing on the collar and cuffs. It's just so quintessentially feminine and the silk flowers play perfectly against the rougher texture of the linen. 



So, what do you think? Would you wear a spring version of the Intelligencer Coat?

  15. What a stunning coat! I absolute adore the cut out fabric you made - amazing. I think it's so much more polished than the anthro version.

  16. The fabric overlay/cut-outs are fantastic! Are you going to make something else with the overlay using two different colors or perhaps thicker fabric? I think it might be really labor intensive, but I can see you using this technique to make a wonderful pencil or even full skirt in a heavier fabric for the fall and winter.

  17. Wooo Girl! Gorgeous. Yes, I'd wear something like that in a heartbeat. Your cut out fabric is so beautiful. And the dress you paired it with just lifts it and makes it even better (than say jean and and top - which I'm sure it would also look great with).
