In April Renningers had their vintage garden weekend and it is always lovely with lots of flowers and antiques worth buying. I had just about made it out with a few small things and then I came upon this lst booth. I looked at what was hanging and could not help myself. She had 2 jackets and 1 skirt that she was selling for the maker.
I ended up buying a jacket and skirt. They were brand new and signed Forever Yours b y Karen. It was dated 1994. 21 years ago. Apparently the gal used to make these and ship them to 2 boutiques in the Carolinas. They sold in the $200. plus range at that time. I paid $100. for the 2 pieces. I have worn the jacket and may never wear the skirt. It is very full and if I do I will probably remove a couple of sections first.
I wore the jacket to the annual garden club luncheon that Sue belongs to and it is held in the private Inverness Country Club in Inverness. Sue is a member and takes me for Mother's Day every year. I just made it back in time for this year being later coming home.
I have snapped a couple of pics then Harv took a couple with me wearing the jacket. Here goes:
Being a sewer myself I was very impressed with the way she had put these together. Very good workmanship.
