Edwardian Jacket

frock_coat_f

This is a constructed Edwardian style jacket made for a Edwardian Ball event.  The outer fabric is a upholstery brocade, while the lining and vest are polyester.  The internal structure is hand done in the traditional tailor fashion. This involved hours of pad stitching needed to shape the internal structure of a man’s coat  Construction time was approximately 80 hours. It was a fabulous learning experience and directly influenced the Sari Jacket I made the next year for myself.
