The doublet is done, except for the buttons and buttonholes.  I tested a buttonhole and I think I actually can do them by hand, but I'm going to wait until I get the other big things done before I try that. 

Of course this looks way better in person.  The doublet is not crooked or wobbly, just pinned shut.  My only problem with it is that the collar is a bit tight, but I probably won't wear it closed most of the time anyway.  The sleeve is a patterned velvet in black and dark brown on a black background or I might do poofy white sleeves.  I can't decide what I like better.  Currently (in person not in the picture) I like the dark sleeves.  And they are already cut out so they would be really easy to finish. ;)



No more pictures of the whole thing until Costume Con.  :)

How does the shoulder detail work?

It's two alternating rows of tabs with silk pulled through. Similar to this:

I am amused, because I've done exactly the same thing, but didn't recognise it!

Mine is teeny tiny tabs - barely an inch wide. Looks very different.

Thanks! No more pictures is mostly because I don't have a nice place to take them inside and it's still too muddy outside. ;) But in three weeks there will be plenty!

OOo!! So pretty!
I really like the look of the darker sleeves with the rest of the outfit.
