Photos at last of progress on “The Suit.” I’ve been working on the waistcoat, which to be honest is not at all interesting to look at right now. It wants for buttons and buttonholes, to follow. Pair it with the velvet frock coat, however, and it’s looking really killer!
I need a man. No really, I need a guy shaped in generally the same way as my client, and I just don’t know any around here! So my female dress form stands in and just doesn’t do any of it justice. The really cool thing about men’s clothing of this time period is that it was just as engineered and tailored for the man’s body as women’s clothing was for the female body.
At any rate, and with apologies for not-great photos, I present to you progress, PROGRESS!
