A few new offerings

I have been absent too long!  Gardening and home renovations have kept me out of the sewing room over the summer.  But I've been busy recently.
 Above, my son models his brown wool frock coat I recently finished.
 A vest for my future son-in-law (I'm so not used to that phrase!)  It needed many modifications to my usual pattern since he is 6' 6" tall.
And my first bow tie.  I had to order the hardware since no one around here carries it.

I;m hoping to be posting here with more regularity but we'll see....

    1. Thanks! He picked the pattern and the fabric. It was the first project I tackled after being away from the sewing room during 'gardening season'. A bit daunting but I love the way it turned out. And I made him give it back because it is to be his Christmas gift! LOL!
