Simplicity 3688-Review






Review is here. I purchased the vintage jackets in NYC in the 80's. I think they are from the late 30's, early 40's. I'll take a photo of the labels and perhaps someone can help me accurately date them. The brown one has the original buttons even though I think a minor repair had been since one of the buttons is a tad smaller than the other. I think a drink and dinner will be involved if you get that close to me to find out which one it is. The blouse were thrifted about ten years ago. It has a draped neckline and I love the colours. It cost about two greenbacks at the time!

Your pants are stunning, what a great fit. The fabric is gorgeous. I recently purchased about 2.5 yds of the same fab with no idea what to make. Perfect pairing and thanks for sharing.
