She starts with an upcycled boiled wool sweater, makes it into a coat, and then it's loaded with the most exquisite handmade embellishments! I've seen Barbara's coats in person and they are over-the-top wonderful. She takes her customer's measurements, listens to their preferences, and then creates a coat of their dreams. They all have a feminine shape and lovely drape.
Not only is she a fabulous artist, but she's a sweet person too.
