I just ordered the pattern I plan on using (above), from this lovely Etsy seller. It's Simplicity #5189, from the early 60's. The jacket in view 2 (the pink) is perfect, don't you think? I might need the matching dress too.
Also, I just wanted to echo Gail's post from yesterday, and recommend the Threads article on choosing trims. It's excellent! I also have two articles in hard copy from back issues of Threads--one is the couture method of making a Chanel-style jacket, and then the other is a shortcut version. I'm definitely leaning towards the shortcut method. I hope that's not cheating!
