Washington's Tweed Cloak

Here's a slightly better view of Washington's cloak and the coat underneath.

Such a ststely looking copy of the real thing!

Thanks, Dawn. He's very special and very stately to me, too. You would laugh if you knew how much "attitude" they gave me during their creation -- just like I imagine they would do during a tailor fitting or something of that ilk. Washington was reputed to be extremely fastidious about his clothes, etc. -- and I have felt it!! But I adore him. Can't you see the "stately" attitude in his slightly upward glance? I didn't plan that. It just happened!!

Yes, he does have attitude behind his eyes, it's fantastic when things occur suddenly like that.
I enjoy your blog.
