This is Christina, who I met at the Western Fair Farmers' Market this past weekend. Her beautiful navy coat caught my eye so I asked her where she got it - turns out she made it herself! She loves styles from the 1950's and this full-skirted, shawl-collared coat definitely has the shape from that era.
She even stiffened the collar with horsehair so that it would stand up and frame her face. I am so envious of people who can design and sew their own clothes - it's both a skill, and a creative art, and one for which I have neither the aptitude or the patience. Apparently she is also an accomplished baker. A stylish young lady who can sew and bake = triple threat!
