Well, here it is, my 1935 jacket, on my body.
I’m super proud of this project, even with all the mistakes I made. It’s wearable and looks pretty alright (please forgive my car-ride creases in the photo).
Now I want to *tailor ALL the things.* I have a couple 1940s repro patterns, and a great 1930s coat pattern from the Vintage Pattern Lending Library just begging to be made up (for a couple years now, in fact).
…but those projects are for when we get back, in 2015. Chris and I are off to spend Christmas and New Year abroad with our family. We’ve not had a true vacation, and never one together, since we started AmericanDuchess.com back in 2011. This is a much needed break.
So with that, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
