I've Been Working

Here's what I've been doing all day instead of making art quilts: repairing, altering, and constructing 18th c. clothing.

1770s coat I made at (and for) work. 

Disclaimer: the pattern's not mine, the coat's not mine... I just put it together.. (This is before I put the buttons on the cuffs and under the pocket flaps.)

Back of coat I made at work. 

Here's the back. Those back vents were a unique challenge, but next time will be easier. I will also get the lining into the sleeves correctly (see how the right sleeve is hanging funny?) the first try next time.
