This is delightful in every way. I'm sure you will get a lot of comments when you wear it!

The embroidery and vintage fabric applique on this jacket left me breathless--it is by far my favorite "ship jacket"!


WOW! I love how you took a mass-produced textile and gave it a story and a history that have personal and national relevance for you. I've gotten an education just reading about your jacket, and I can get lost looking at all the beautiful details. It's hard to pinpoint a favorite detail--but I love the patched sheet, the flying fish, and of course your gorgeous vintage buttons. This is a real treasure.
