First - clothes for a man. I'm making a vest and frock coat. The vest is nearly done. Robin is going to do buttonholes for me and then I just need to add buttons and sew the lining shut. And since the wearer is deathly allergic to cats, the cat is sitting on it. I do love how it matches her eyes....
I'm also going to make a frock coat. A black frock coat. Sort of dreading it even though I'm using a different pattern than Robin (she felt hers was just too fussy). I got the fabric and lining in the mail and they are HEAVY. I may have got too heavy of lining. Gonna have to think about this.
And, after resisting our silly costuming, he now wants a steampunk gun and holster. When they fall, they fall hard!
And here are examples on my insertion lace (2 1/4 inch) and eyelet lace (1
inch) for the neck
