A selection of vintage 1930s and early 40s Apparel Arts illustrations, which I have never come across before, that I found very early this morning, well before 7am, while enjoying coffee in my pajamas and the blissful quiet of the house before anyone else was stirring. My late maternal grandmother always used to say that the early morning was her time of the day before the rest of the family was up and running. I concur.
On a different note, I dropped off a couple of new sports jackets with my tailor yesterday for alterations. We've built up a wonderful working relationship in the last five years or so as I have periodically taken in suits, sports jackets, and odd pants for various adjustments.
Yesterday, within a matter of minutes, Mr. T. measured, made a few chalk marks, and pinned the side seams, sleeve lengths, and sleeve widths on both a navy linen jacket with patch pockets and a blue micro-check worsted wool jacket. Almost before my eyes, the two items suddenly looked much better, fitting as though made to measure.
Can't wait to retrieve them next week once the actual alterations have been made.
