Ladies raincoat – fixed!

You remember that a few weeks ago I mentioned in passing that I (mostly) fixed the weird pulling in my Ladie’s Raincoat?

Well, I wore it out the other day, with my brand new designer jeans mock up, and a handmade hat, and the look was so hilarious it’s kinda cool. Which means, of course, you totally deserve to see it 😀

Ou est la baguette??

This probably says more about my youth than anything else I’ve ever posted, but I felt very french when I looked at this picture. The 60s coat (which is actually 70s, but to me looks 60s), the skinny trousers, the beret … that screamed film noir to me.

Because I’m ramming my fist down the pockets like I was digging for gold, you can’t really see that the issue is indeed mostly fixed. So here’s another headless photo as proof of that:

Fixed Ladie’s Raincoat

And next week, we’ll make a journey into the wonderful world of bum wrinkles. Stay tuned!

Love all things vintage, especially knitting from the victorian era through to the swinging twenties.

    1. Beware what you wish for, lol – but seriously, I have started consulting my fitting books (Thanks again to Silvia, the “Pants for any body” come in super handy here!). I’ll detail the findings next week … let’s just say it’s got nothing to do with “flat derriere” …

    1. Hahahaha – they will disappear though, if you just wrap them in a well-fitting jeans! (As I’m sure you know!)
      And thank you … I’m beginning to see a theme in wardrobe, which I think is A Good Thing ™.
