Would YOU Finish Another Seamstress’s UFO?

Happy New Year everyone!

Vintage UFO

via ebay seller ramonab9711

I was browsing vintage sewing patterns on ebay this evening when I came across something unusual and full of mystery.  The seller had listed a vintage UFO (unfinished object)! It was a McCall’s coat pattern along with the pattern pieces pinned to already-cut vintage tweed fabric and a very vintage floral print that perhaps was meant for the lining and vintage buttons for the coat.  (Check out the listing for yourself here if you’re interested, but FYI, it ends in a few days).

I was tempted to buy it out of curiosity and it’s a reasonable price for a pattern AND fabric, but the shipping to Sweden is not worth it for me at three times the item price.  Still, it raises so many questions. Who was the seamstress who abandoned the project in the 1960s, and what happened to her? Did she forget about it or lose steam on the project, or was it something more intriguing or more serious?

Give me your best guess!
