1795 Coat

I have started a 1795 coat for my husband. His other coat is a thicker wool and too hot to wear in the warmer months. I have a piece of silk from Burnley and Trowbridge that I absolutely adore and am so glad to be able to use it at last.

Inspiration:

Pattern: Laughing Moon 124

Progress photos so far:

I'm very impressed with the tail - and the pleats have come out beautifully in this silk.
