Okies, I'm mostly using Sew Your Song and Stitch Stories for this, but to be honest I had this designed before the competition came out :S
I think it fits in well with my song choice though- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt8CxYseJDU This is my all-time favourite song. Sanctuary by Utada Hikaru. There's a line in it that pretty much describes what I'm going for here, You show me how to see that nothing is whole and nothing is broken. (Ok, it doesn't make much sense but you get the idea, right?) The coat looks like it's made up of different pieces of clothing, but in reality it's all one piece, just with different textures and colours.
I took a liberty with Stitch Stories... I actually got inspiration for this from Kingdom Hearts, the game series that has Sanctuary as a theme song. The characters all have pretty weird clothes, and part of me feels that this design wouldn't be out of place in that game. I can see Olette wearing this.
Description time, eh? Where to start- Everything is asymmetrical. The collar is further over on the right than left, and it sticks up straight. It isn't completely round, but more of a teardrop shape, with the point just above the right collar bone. There are no sleeves, but it is cut in such a way that the torso part covers the shoulders. The hem is also teardrop shaped, going straight across the back and then descending to a point at the top of the left leg. The descent downwards is concave. The darker parts with stripes are layered pieces of fabric which... envelope the body? Let's say the layers start at the right shoulder up to the left side of the collar, goes around the back, and comes out at the left side of the waist. Like a snake. And finally, the fasteners. I was thinking either two zips, one ending and one beginning just above the right side of the waist. The top one extends up the side of the collar at the shoulder seam. Otherwise, there could be a row of hook-and eyes underneath, with a length of bias-binding or matte ribbon along the edge.
I was thinking it could be done in some kind of closely-woven wool. Mackinaw or gaberdine, maybe? Either that or something else fairly heavy, that reflects light ever so slightly? In light and charcoal grey. Black zips or ribbon.
