More progress on James’ velvet and brocade suit. The linings are being hand-stitched in and pleats adjusted…and….and….
We’ve done two sets of buttons – the waistcoat buttons made from the same fabric, taking a floret from the brocade to make these buttons extra snazzy; and very large, hand-embroidered velvet buttons to add an extra touch of awesome to the frock coat. More on the embroidered buttons later… 🙂
Lots of little bits of finishing now, to wrap up all the raw edges and make it all nice and DONE. All the buttons here are pinned on to show the full impact of the final products, with the embroidered buttons running down the front, on the cuffs, and the pocket flaps as well.
