Bridget Miranda Sidden, Garden Coat, 2009; merino wool, silk chiffon, silk lining. The base of this coat was knit on a single-bed knitting machine with peach merino wool. It is fully lined with silk lining. The flower effect was created by hand gathering thin strips of silk chiffon with a running stitch and then attaching them by hand to the coat base.
