      I found the pattern at an antique shop in Nebraska. They have alot of stuff from the 40’s to the 60’s. I have also found several pieces from before 1900’s.

    This was Christmas item for one of my customers. She is a balloon artist who dresses in 50’s dresses and wanted a winter coat to fit over all her crinolines she wears.
