The J.P. Ryan 18th-century jacket pattern is seriously made of WIN. I idly did a mockup this evening, on a whim. The size fit true, went together easily (didn’t even need to consult the instructions), & *drum roll please* it fits!
DOOOD. So I cut it out of the fashion fabric. No idea if I’ll have enough time to make the jacket *and* the required petticoat *and* trim a new hat all before Sunday — especially when I really should be giving the whole house a major cleaning for the houseguests arriving on 7/3 & staying 2 weeks.
But a crazyperson can dream.
