Three-fourths of a jacket done. It’ll be a bit plain. No time nor stuff in The Stash for trimmings. Still not sure if I’ll finish it up — I could easily do it tomorrow, but I have many other boring house things I need to finish first.
Still, very pleased that the thing went together so easily. For a change!
It’s a smidge big (well, the front pieces aren’t very fitted as per the pattern; I knew I wouldn’t have time for the laced-over-a-stomacher version what with those eyelets). But as a casual jacket, it’s pretty cute. Even added a little trim after I took these pix — just some velvet cuffs and matching bows on the front.
Realized I could wear it with a black petticoat from the closet, which leaves me to pick whichever hat I feel like tomorrow.
Y’know, 18th-century is *so* much easier to “just whip up” than 16th-century. Did the same thing with that blue caraco outfit, same time 2 years ago. Hmm…
