I’m halfway through this project. It really isn’t that much work, but it’s important that it fits well, so it’s taking longer then expected.
I made a mock-up out of cotton, it has a couple of issues I need to fix. The arm holes are to small, there’s so much fabric sticking out around the arms. I’m taking the side seam in to fix it.
The outer fabric will be purple/gold brocade, the shoulder seams are still pinned because I want to add lining befor I close it up. lining is black satin that was lying around, I’m unable to go to the fabric market saturday so it’ll have to do.
