Winter 2010

Fabric: Heavy Brocade with metallic threads - synthetic from JoAnn's upholstry department ... Pattern: Draped by me

A fancy doublet for a 7th Sea character. The fur stole is from a vintage shop, but gets the whole Henry VIII/Viking Warlord thing across. Kind of a rush job, but the only hang up was the buttonholes. With the facings, the garnment was too think for machine stitched buttonholes. Each and every one was sewn by hand. Very exhausting, but the results are quite dashing.
