From Folk Style: “While helping one of her children research frontier women for a school project, Tara Jon Manning became captivated by the life of Annie Oakley- a true American folk hero and an outstanding figure in the history of women’s rights. Annie was an accomplished seamstress as well as a marksman and was known for her signature shooting outfits. This elegant fitted jacket emulates the style of Annie’s hallmark suits and pays tribute to her sewing and embroidery skills.”
