And because it will take a few weeks for the mint green fabric to line my black doublet to arrive, I’ve decided to work on other projects.
On the list is a black petticoat, a red petticoat, and a red doublet. I’ll leave the petticoats for now, as I don’t know how much fabric I’ll have left over to use in them (I prefer 5 yards, but can make do with 4). This leaves the red doublet.
I’m concerned that the red may be a little overpowering on me, seeing as it’s very red, so I’ve decided to add a bunch of black wool fingerloop braid for trim, as well as black lining along the skirts and shoulder wings.
