Just a quick entry to let you know I finally finished my husband’s 18th century waistcoat.
It has plenty of mistakes and things I’m not happy about, but overall it will work and most importantly — he loves it!
His excitement makes me incredibly happy since he was never interested in costuming before.
I really hope I’m able to finish everything in time for the picnic in November.
I still have to make his jacket and breeches, and order things like shoes and stockings.
I also changed the ruffle on his shirt (I would like to make another cravat, but we’ll see if I have time), and I adjusted the hair accessory to clip onto his shorter hair. He had longer hair before, and cut it when he got a new job.
