As previously mentioned, instead of a proper coat, I want this as a "jacket bodice", so I cut it out from the TV tea gown pattern, cutting it off at the hem where it said "lengthen or shorten here" since I want the underskirt to be seen.



Anyway, when LL came over on Sunday, we held up the trim to the partially made garment and realized it needed something. It was too plain. We looked at the fashion plate and saw that there was a silver-grey trim underneath the braid, so off to Jomar we went! I got 8 yards of this really lovely medium weight satin for $1/yd




I'm about to cut out the sleeves, so there's a ways to go before you see anything good, but I thought I'd share my project :)

Thank you! That really struck me, too! I tried to cut it at the same angle as in the fashion plate.

Interesting idea. Wish you could see more detail on black fabric.

Oh, I know! Black fabric is notorious. I think I need a better camera because I usually use black and I need one that can capture it!

It looks fabulous so far, I imagine that the final project will be nothing short of incredible. I love that braided trim.

Thank you so much! Yeah, the trim was a good find. I was lucky and in the right place at the right time.

Love it sofar! Now I really need that teagown pattern. You have made such beautiful garments with it. It's a true inspiration!
