The Cpt.’s Silk Frock Coat

I finally have the pictures :D, courtesy of Mrs. Cartwright.





Here you can see Mrs. Cartwright’s lovely death head buttons. Her work is amazing, and it adds the perfect finish to her husband’s coat.

Next week I will be sewing shirts, night shirts, chemises, and banyans. Not super exciting, but I plan to post pics anyway :D

Love Lauren

Perfectly done!
And I don't think sewing shirts, chemises etc is boring, they are the foundation of the "perfect look"!


P.S. Heehee - your sewing pace is scary...;)))

Deeelicious! I love those colours too!

Wow, that's stunning! The fabric looks great, I've always loved stripes!

Impressive and gorgeous! The colours harmonize so well, and the death head's buttons are perfect!
