I think it is easier to find a well fitted coat than a suit. I wanted to share with you a remarkable jacket that if it would have fit correctly, I would have kept it. I tend to pass forward the clothing that doesn't fit me well, including Lilli Ann. I haven't yet been to a tailor to adjust a vintage suit and not to say this wouldn't happen in the future but I feel like with a jacket the adjustments are much more complex than with a cotton dress.
I took a few pictures of this jacket for remembrance sake. It had exquisite details and the white against the navy was certainly a dramatic effect. But, it was slightly too big. Certain angles it is difficult to see, others it is quite obvious.
This jacket was beautiful the white stripe effect so well done.
Would you like a sneak peak at my latest Lilli Ann jacket? I'm just waiting for the right brown skirt to come along. <Fingers crossed>
A really lovely detail is how under the lapel is a white satin fabric.
