    I did a three-part tutorial linked below on ‘sewing the safari’ look which I hope everyone will enjoy. Congrats on a great YSL style result!

      Thank you. I appreciate the compliment since you are quite the perfectionist!

    Great looking jacket! Classic YSL look and well made. All you need are matching pants and a jabot scarf and you’ll have 1970’s YSL perfected! Love it!
