Quilted Waistcoat

Hello! I promise I'm still alive! Things have been hectic with the wedding, my husband prepping for deployment, and a new puppy. However, most of that is slowing down. I finally got some images of my quilted waistcoat. I'll hopefully get to an informational post on those and jumps some time in a couple weeks. This one is made from a Duran textiles print that I got a remnant of and bound with linen tape. I used a cotton/bamboo batting on the inside since that's what I could find.

I'm in process on a gentleman's suit and my 1812 corset as well. Oh! And I haven't gotten my wedding pictures back just yet, but my photographers do have a preview up on their site.

What a beautiful and comfortable looking waistcoat! I love the fabric you found for it.

I look forward to seeing your wedding pictures after looking at the lovely preview ones.

What beautiful clothes! I just happened upon your blog. Very cool. I wonder if you have made clothes for any reenactors of the Fort Toulouse project. - BTW, your wedding photos are gorgeous and the details amazing. So glad that it all went so well. Nikki B.
