Oleg Cassini coat designed for Jackie Kennedy

Inspired by my pattern-making class, I’m reading Oleg Cassini’s A Thousand Days of Magic. Cassini was Jackie Kennedy’s clothing designer during the White House years.  The book includes sketches of the many dresses, suits, and coats that he designed for Jackie, along with photos of her wearing them.  It’s a fun escape into the high fashion world of the 1960’s.

This is the Cassini coat that Jackie wore to her husband’s inauguration in 1961.
