Description

Couture Tailored Pendleton wool Jacket inspired from Vogue 7908 by Claire Shaeffer’s custom couture collection with the front redrafted by me, Sandi O’Shea. Top stitching is used on the shawl collar and the front princess seams. There are two bound button holes one horizontal and one vertical to accomodate interchangeable buttons that button onto the left side and then button on to the right.

Material Notes

Pendleton wool, custom made shoulder pads, hair canvas interfacing and custom buttons with shank for buttoning both sides onto jacket

    Great job on the details; it looks very polished and classy and fits you perfectly. I have an ancient skirt made from Pendleton wool—it’s great stuff.

      Thanks for appreciating my work and noticing the details. I think fit is why I sew because ready made clothes donn’t fit me.

      Thanks for appreciating those interchangable buttons. I am always wanting things to work for many situations. Making the buttons was a fun challenge.
