The lounging jacket from The Invisible Man

Attn:
Thank you all for the interest in this garment. 
For those who are contacting me now (2022) please understand, this is not just a Halloween costume you can pull off the rack at Target. It's a handmade couture custom tailored garment. A beyond lifelong piece. Please expect pricing to reflect that.
If you want to get into the cue for 2023, I start taking commissions again in February.
Thank you.

Hello lovely people.

I has been some time since I've made a post on a garment that I've made for myself....and this is no exception.

I've been working on my new pattern line which is coming along nicely, I've been making new dresses for backers, and I've been doing alterations for others, all the while, trying to make that rent!

This is a project that I've been involved with for a long time. 
The lounging jacket from the 1933 film, The Invisible Man.


Catalog Thursday because I'm super late.

Ugh, Ive got so many plates in the air, but I really need to get back to keeping up my Catalog SUndays. SO here is a super late (or very early) Catalog Sunday!
