Finished Waistcoats

Yup, they’re done! Two waistcoats in three days; entirely hand sewn. Whew, I’m tired :P Tomorrow I will be starting on hubby’s new frock coat. I hope to have it finished by this weekend. We’ll see how far I get.

Mrs. Cartwright’s amazing buttons! She made them for both waistcoats, the breeches, and his yet to be constructed frock coat.

They are gorgeous! You are so, sooo fast. Mrs. Cartwright's buttons are don't see the deathhead buttons on many reproduction garments and I think they add such a special touch!
