I couldn't comfortably wear the dress that I wore last Easter, but I could wear the Jacket and "Hat" I wore with it. :o)  I made this Jacket last year using Doilies and other things made by Grandmothers, Great-Grandmothers, Mother in Law, even a piece by me.  The "flowers" on my shoulder were made from my Grandfathers Christening Cap with beads and a bit of Tatting from Hubby's Grandmother!  If you're wondering what piece I's the tiny green flower on my right shoulder. :o)  I also made my "Hat" with some of the beads from Hubby's Grandmother used as dewdrops.



  1. Oh WOW I love this Jacket! I need to find me some doilies, or perhaps a table cloth to re work into a Jacket.

    1. Oh yes you should! Please let me know if you do so I can check it out. :o)
