I am working on a contribution for this project organised by Gareth Ballyn. A number of artists, community groups, and other individuals are making replicas or copies or versions of specific garments. These will be presented at Oldway Mansion later this month to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of engineer Isaac Singer of the sewing machine company.
For my version, I am using a pattern my mother used to make a jacket for my father in about 1958. She made it in a red / brown plaid wool fabric and he had it up until his death in 2004.
