Thank you Phineas. I still find waistcoats to be tricky little beasts!
Great job on the hat! I am still struggling with the regency waistcoat but I think I've finally figured it out. (There was some information written on the pattern itself which was extremely crucial!
Thank you, Professor.
Well done !
Latest hat creation: a "flower pot" style hat for a mid to late 1880's ensemble. I modified the Truly Victorian pattern to make an asymmetrical brim for a more dynamic and interesting look. It is a classic buckram and wire construction, mulled in cotton flannel, and covered in black moiré cotton/rayon and pale green silk chiffon. Lined in black silk. The ribbon is antique and has the most wonderful detailing, a black on black woven mini checker pattern at the edges.
A major inspiration was this fur felt beauty from ca. 1885, by Mme Mantel:
What a find, and in your size too!
