Anyway, This coat would be a favorite of mine and since I know how to sew, I think I'll look into making some things in this vein.
I'm learning so much from the blogs I read. One thing is what I like and what I don't like. And I've learned to try visualizing something on me before I get it. For instance, blazers. I like the boyfriend look. The small blazer isn't for me for so many reasons. The constrained thing comes to mind. I actually had a decent figure until about 10 years ago. But I have never been comfortable in tight clothing. And I was somewhat limited by a large bust. The funny thing is-I wore pencil skirts in the sixth grade, in the fifties. I wore sweater sets. I wore the add on collars. I wore flats. I had a beautiful pearl collar. I just wish I had kept it. By this you can see something of my perspective. What goes around comes around.
