Again thanks, it did take a long time, but it was a lot of fun, I wish I could make more. Vogue patterns has some jackets with interesting details. But the materials are obscure and expensive and it takes about 40 hours of work so they are not good for swapping!  Cheesy

Wow...I adore this coat.  It's a jacket that I could 100% see myself wearing.  I worked at Fort William Historical Park as a Tailleur Coutourier (Historical Tailor), and have really become interested in re-creation.  I hope you continue to make wonderful pieces like this!

That jacket is *really* nice. I would wear one just like it for interviews and stuff.

Wow, lovely work!  I really want to make a suit, but I can't find the fabric I want.  Do you have any suggestions for tailoring fabric sources?

I think that is a stunning outfit. I love clothing from the 20s thru till the 60s and one of my wishes is to have something like that of my very own someday!
You should feel extremely proud of yourself, because that is amazing work
