Yesterday, I finally got down to a sewing project I've had waiting -- a new fleece jacket. And finished it just in time for spring weather, when it's warm enough for a lighter jacket like this!

doublet
Originally uploaded by Kath B.

I just finished making this doublet to donate to ToV. I'm rather pleased with the result. I don't do a lot of "real" sewing; most of my own LARP costuming is simple stuff like T-tunics. But this was more substantial. The one thing I didn't do was real buttonholes; I have a 50-year-old black Singer sewing machine that's a treasure, but the buttonholer attachment is a pain to deal with.

Behind the cut is a closeup of the neckline. (Like this photo, it's a bit blurry, because I took the photos with no flash -- the flash was too shiny bouncing off the velvet.)

I like having well-dressed NPCs. I hope this works out well.
