My shacket has been done for a week or two, and I’m wearing it everywhere. It’s, hands down, one of the most versatile garments I’ve ever made.
Part of the photoshoot delay has been waiting for this to arrive from Canada….. Oh, and I also needed a haircut.
A Halston silk scarf, found on Etsy, which seems to have been made for this shacket. I’m loving it!
Thank you Princessjainascloset for adding a bit of extra panache to this project.
So here it is, a 1970’s leisure suit resurrected more than three decades later. Still looking good, Mr. Halston!
Here I’m wearing it with my Foulard shirt from last year. I’m not quite sure Maine is ready for men in “Gucci-esque” pussy bow shirts. Is anyone? Still, I had fun dressing up; knowing that if I lived in a big metropolitan area, I’d totally be sporting this look.
Pretty soon the cold winds are gonna start blowing, and I’ll have to retire my shacket. But for now, it’s the perfect extra layer.
I just might need another one.
Cheers! And happy Fall sewing!
