Coat Dress or Tent Dress?

My own design of a
Coat Dress.

A 1960's tent dress pattern.

2013 Victoria Beckman designs a modern 
version of the tent dress that most
 are calling hideous.
I like it, it has most things I like
about a casual dress... its floaty,
comfortable to wear &
love the style of the hem with
the contrast bias trim. 

Since we are in the middle of a cold spell
I designed this dress of, wait for it,
Polar Fleece!

I made it with front to back facings,

extra long sleeves,
in seam side pockets &

added my signature lined hoody.
It really was too baggy so
I gathered the front from
side to side seam.

It is comfortable, warm
& cosy to wear.

What do you think....a Coat dress or a Tent dress?

Sew you later!
