In honor of Cinco de Mayo (I know, I know, it isn't a REAL authentic Mexican holiday, but I'm making guacamole today anyway!) I'm sharing my cute Mexican jacket from the 1940s. These hand appliqued jackets were very popular, and they had a variety of wonderful scenes and motifs embroidered an appliqued on them, usually in felt or wool.
I love mine, I used to wear it when I was a couple of sizes smaller. Now it just 'hangs around'. Enjoy!
