    Sartorial elegance for new Mentor

    Had no idea when JustRob requested new waistcoats that he should have purple ones, so black and green will have to do.
    I'd like to say l ran these up in no time at all, black one no problem, green one a right pain. The
    machine didn't like it, slipped all over the place, and then it frayed at the slightest touch.
    That's needlework for you, no frustration no creation.

    May I say that I love that you call them waistcoats instead of "vests?" Those are beautiful.

    Pleased you liked my latest waistcoats, he has quite a few in a variety of colours.
    In the UK a vest is an item of underwear.

    It sounds like an item of underwear. I have a propensity for reading English authors and it took forever to sort out what a waistcoat was. For a while I was under the impression that Victorian gentlemen wore cummerbund style corsets beneath their clothes.

    We may both speak the same language but have no idea what the other person is talking about. When l read American authors l have to translate a lot of clothing items. Your pants. Our trousers, vests / waistcoats etc. I never have worked out why our handbag is called a purse over there, that's what we call the thing that holds coins in our handbag, what do you call it? I'm mystified.

    Coin purse if it's the one with the clasps at the top. Otherwise we either "donate" change to the next person or let it slide around loose. Most women don't carry them (I do).

    Nice! I love them both but the black one strikes me the most. You are a talented lady.

    Haven't I always said that? Er, I have, haven't I? Yes, I must have done. Well, I'm pretty that sure I have ... or at least given that impression ... sort of thing ... sometime or other.
