It reminds me of those trousers with the zips to remove the legs so they become shorts. Ultimately I think it's probably the same outcome, if you want a pair of trousers and a pair of shorts you get a pair of both. Same with jackets I suspect, you want a waist length jacket and you want a longer length car coat style you get one of each.
Nope - first off it's not mine - secondly I don't come to forums to ask value - most of the time I already know.
I just haven't seen anything quite like this and was hoping for some genuine information.
I posted on Fedora as well to gain more info but everyone seems to be drawing a blank.
Welcome the the forum, Stewie........................a phrase little used on VLJ I'm sorry to say
I used this method in the late 1960s
I made a short"Biker style" waist length jacket..................(basically the top half of what I made later for Suzi Quatro),
There was a hiddem O/E zipper under the waistband and one could zip on a Short skirt, long skirt, Knee length coat extension or even a full length ankle length coat extension for the super trendy
One jacket, four lower versions
Sold really well
I’ve never heard of anyone else doing it before or since, so after all these years I find out I wasn’t the originator of the idea after all!!
