it's so......union jack. me and my cursed anglophilia

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

I'm guessing that you are not planning on adding the jacket to your wardrobe.  What will you be doing with it?  Are you planning on selling it or keeping it for your portfolio?  I'm amazed by everyone's results.

Please excuse me because I am very tired, and I feel like everything I write sounds extremely weird.  I've been trying to scan the "in-progress" pictures, but my computer and/or scanner are being difficult.

But thanks everybody for all your kind words.

As for what I'm going to do with it, my plan is pretty much that I'll hang onto it, and occasionally take it out and go "Wow!"  Originally I thought I might give it to someone, then I thought I would use it as a sort of one-piece sewing portfolio: "See, I can do this, and this, and this" but, if you really give it your minute attention, there are little imperfections here and there which make me too embarassed to show to anybody very serious about sewing, much less possible employers.  (Of course you are all serious about sewing, but you can't really see any of the problems in pictures, only if you are looking closely.)  Probably it will be like some other items I have, which I am keeping to give to whomever I eventually marry, so that I actually get to keep them, if you see what I mean.  I've been wondering how much this jacket was originally at Galliano, and I'm guessing in the neighborhood of eight thousand dollars, so if someone wants to pay me that much I suppose they can have it.  (I'd probably just make another  Smiley)

I do want to send a picture to showstudio but not till I have a better one; in these I got my finger in the frame like I always do and so they are somewhat overexposed.  I still hold out hope that I will get someone into this with an eyepatch and a pirate hat.

Oh and I never knew "beastly" could mean "good"

Well I'm pretty sure you'll have your pick of marriage prospects if part of the deal is a selection of such beautiful goodies! Now how come my lovely husband isn't so deft with a tricky pattern? Bah!
