This 1940s jacket is simply stunning. Not only is the jacket itself in fantastic condition, but it also has these fluttery sleeve pieces that are so cool and unique.
Unfortunately, the 70-year-old lining is far from fantastic; in fact, it is in a sad sad state.
Fortunately, we at Dame love a challenge. I chose a pretty silky fabric for the lining, and am now in the process of taking apart the lining entirely and using the existing pieces as the pattern. Check back soon to see how this beaut is coming along!
