We’re so busy, we haven’t had time to really sit down and write up much. I have been taking pictures of construction and all, I just haven’t organized them into anything remotely coherent. So, what you are getting is a picture update.
The burgundy suit is proceeding well, and we’re at the button holes and buttons phase with the doublet. It took awhile to work out the best way to do the buttonholes on that shreddy fabric, but we’ve got it. The pants are very close to the same state (whee!!!) We’ll get pictures soon.
Carla has been busy working up a mock up of the pants for the green suit. She’s made a pair of red linen pants that we’ll put in the shop to sell. It’s turning out well, there are some tweaks that need to be made to the pattern. The original was for a rather large man (50″ waist) so there’s some adjustments to be made.
This is Carla showing off the pants. They are a bit big on her.
Neat pocket detail
Funky fly flap
Someone more appropriately sized for this mock up, showing off how poofy they are. I think they look fab!
The green doublet is proceeding along well.
Not the most flattering picture, but you can see the finger woven trim and the tangerine lining at the sleeves :).
