thanks, everyone!

  and you could totally get away with a big flowery pin on it

My thoughts, exactly! I was thinking I could also use a more "mod" flower pin to play up the contrast

Too cute!  It really suits you.  Would you just wear it over jeans?

Love it.

I saw the movie just for the costumes. I was thinking of entering this challenge with a costume reproduction but my sewing machine broke. I'm glad someone represented! nice craftsmanship

thank you kindly! Someone made the point that I could probably wear it solo, which I actually hadn't thought of before. Yes, I would probably wear it with pants, or maybe with a slim grey pencil skirt that I have (balancing the volume of the coat with a narrower bottom). In the pics, I am wearing it over a cami and a pair of cropped wool trousers, so you can see that there is plenty of volume at the hem for fitting over pants. I was thinking of donning it over a slim black silk turtleneck for now (channel my inner Audrey Hepburn) and later over tanks and camis. I always develop a strong desire to wear white when the early-spring nautical looks hit store windows.

beautiful! i've been trying to work out how to marie-antoinette-ify some of my clothes, without resorting to sort of fancy cocktail wear (that i wouldn't. wear.)
