Your Weekend Wow!

Fall is approaching – just over 10 days away. One item I do not have is a nice coat for the dressy events on chilly nights to come. I could probably manage to squeeze this one into my coat closet…

Woman’s coat, c. 1890. United States, maker unknown. Embroidered silk with ostrich feathers. Length: 52 inches (132.1 cm) Waist: 33 inches (83.8 cm). Accession number 1949-50-1.

  1. I want this coat! But like valarielynn, it rarely gets cold enough here to be able to wear it. Not to mention there’s no place to wear it… Sigh.

    But I can dream about it. 🙂

  2. Sometimes I wished I could make a pretty coat but since we rarely have cold enough days or even nights that I could use it, sadly it’s not a priority. I did have a talma made for me from a TV pattern using black curly lamb so I can only hope some day I might be able to wear it. That would be gorgeous tho.
