Finished trapunto

I have changed my mind about this coat so many times. I finally decided to use some soft black wool twill from stash and put a celtic knotwork design down the centre in trapunto. Well, I have the trapunto stitched with batting and stuffed with acrylic yarn for some more depth. Now to cut out the coat!
It is a OOP Vogue pattern, #2449.

Fortunately it is a timeless style and will still be wearable in years to come. However it won't match the scarf I knit in the summer.

This is beautiful, MaryPat! I love the look of trapunto, and this is a great place to use it. Very nice.

Thanks Liana. I am really pleased with it and so am now terrified to cut the wool! I just posted more information on Artisan's Square as well as my personal blog if you are interested.

MaryPat, this is stunning! I've been 'planning' a coat with trapunto down the front for years (an homage to a coat my mother had back in the early '50s)--your rendition may finally push me to take the plunge (after the carcoat, of course!).
