Finished Coat Dress




I was relieved to finish up my coat dress and move on. The sun was going in and out and the wind blowing but Bob managed to snap a few shots of me in the latest get up.
I'm now working on this.
I just have the facings, hems, and button holes to do.
Then I'm starting on Gertie's Starlet jacket. I have that pattern all put together now 57 sheets! 
The supplies to make this should arrive soon.

Stunning against the snow. Can't tell what makes it the lipstick or the shoes. Oh that's right it is the fact that you have the figure of an eighteen year old! Nan you really outdid yourself this time. Smiles...Renee
