Spring Fashion

Spring clothes are popping up in the store windows here tho' we had snow this morning and it's still freezing. Saw a very interesting jacket in a store window shown with white jeans turned up at bottom for a 4 inch cuff. The jacket looked like sand colored linen and was monochromatic, short and shaped with rows of lace on high neck and lower sleeves bound with rows of ruffles and lots of trim swirled back and forth down the front like a Russian soldier's jacket...all in the same sand color. A mere CHF 899 will get me the jacket to wear this Spring. Ooooooooooooooor not! Time to get my antique Singer treadle Nahmaschine working. I have time. It's January and I understand it won't begin to warm up here until April.
