1929 Coat with Pin Tucks and Godets: All Wrapped Up!

My finished 1929 German Coat!  It took first place in the adult division of Arizona Make it with Wool and off to the national competition it goes! (click on images for larger view)

Can't believe I missed pressing that right godet at the back!

Now for some finish details, sleeve pin tucks:

I expect to have it cleaned once it comes back from judging to relax any puckering.

New Multi-Size Pattern, the 1935 Pajama Ensemble

Here is the 1935 Pajama Ensemble in sizes 14 to 46:

It's a nice pattern if you want to take on pin tucks and mitering bias facing to square necklines and armholes.  Here is a nice detail from the instructions to show you just what I mean!

Recommended fabrics are: Silk Crepe, Rayon Crepe, Satin and Taffeta.  Click here to see the yardage chart and schematic for this pattern.

On another note, I had scheduled to issue this beautiful 1956 Vogue Kimono (Day or Evening) Coat:

I had to put that plan on the back burner when dealing with a HUGE printing problem during November in order to keep following patterns on schedule.  I plan to have this coat ready to go first quarter of 2014.
