All The Cool Kids Are Doing It
They are all making a jacket or coat or whatever.
They are all making Lady Grey... You know, with Gertie.
Sure when the whole project launched, I saw it and I was like:
"It looks so hard. I have a nice coat.... and Jeez, I'm busy"
But then they've all been like" Making Muslins" and "Pad Stitching" and making "Bound Button Holes" and fancy fancy tailor-y seamstress stuff.
And I got jealous.
I still don't have time right now for Lady Grey...
But I'm doing a Sort-a Kind-a sew along, but way off to the side...
A Simplicity vintage How To from 1956 and a Simplicity vintage pattern circa 1940 sumpthin'.
A simpler jacket for a complicated time.
But I got my pad stitching on.
Not as cool as the cool kids... but working on it.
