Robin - I love fabric!

My beau will be wearing that grey wool frock coat lined in a dashing red.  I'm a bit concerned about the amount of tailoring I'll have to learn in order to create a frock coat, but  hey- it's only engineering, right?

This is what I have so far for the Elizabethan garb. Green velvet for the doublet/bodice, loads of white linen, a lovely clay colored silk that has shots of pink and green iridescent flashes through it, and  a charmeuse for his slops and other accent pieces, maybe the sleeve linings. I still have not found the right material for my underskirt. The one I wanted had sold out by the time I tried to order it. Waaah!
