I finished my maroon skirt and a new vest for a high tea this afternoon. Events are such good deadlines.
I think the vest could fit better at the back waistline. I added tails to the vest in back, and I'm still not sure if the tails flatter my good part or make worse my worst part. I used some of the remaining maroon linen as lining, and brown tropical wool suiting as the outer layer, with mother-of-pearl buttons. I also practiced my welt pockets and added one to the vest.
I got to wear my Gibson shoes...
And check out my cool party favor- embroidered silk ribbon flower hanky.
