white jacket progress report
Anyhow, inside out and missing sleeves, but its coming together. I'm slowly but surely taking down all the seams so it will lie flat. I still have to do the sides and the shoulders, and then I'm ready for sleeves, a collar and the piece de resistance, the collar.
In other news, I finally ordered the thinsulate early last week, so lets think hapy thoughts about it arriving soon, so I can play with it and see if it will in fact be warm enough, or if I will need a second interlining. (This coat will be WARM) (and pretty!)
On a side note, I've been developing a bit of a fixation on the gowns (particularly the skirts) of the early 1900s. Someone needs to have a fabulous ball and invite me.
