Ta da! Here's David on his graduation day in the Bonnie Prince Charlie jacket, white tie vest, bowtie and kilt hose flashes! Doesn't he look dapper? It was such an amazing day (and yes, I did get more than a little teary-eyed) and I'm so incredibly proud of what he has accomplished! I was so happy to be able to share in making the day special!
Here are a few more of the details of the garments:
For the graduation ceremony and garden party, I wore my "Royal Wedding" dress with my "Birthday Dress Suit" jacket and my 1930's hat. You won't be surprised that it was raining heavily all day long--but it did let up when we took the photos (yay!)
The garden party was in a large marquee tent complete with adorable snacks and champagne!
We are very happy with the way it turned out and I look forward to sewing up more of these jackets and waistcoats. I have to give a shout out here to my darling friend Meg (who blogs over at Meg the Grand) who heard I was tackling welt pockets sent me a fabulous book (by the legendary Claire Shaeffer no less) all the way from Chicago. We didn't end up having time to do the welt pockets but this will certainly not be the last waistcoat I make--both David and I love how they look!
Phew! What an amazing day! Thanks for all your lovely comments on the last two posts--it means a lot to us to share this with all of you!
