(The gloves are the ones I made for my late bustle dress, so they don't have an 18th century style thumb, but I doubt anyone would care. I liked the dark grey with this outfit.)
And a few pictures with the waistcoat lapels visible. I can't decide which way I like it better.
And finally my 1790's fan from the treasures of dawn has a proper 1790's outfit to be used with.
It has lacing down the center back.
The handkerchief is a roll hemmed triangle of cotton organdy.
I took the basic shape and construction from the striped 1790's man's coat from Costume Close-Up. I reshaped the front edges for a more severe cut-away shape and added large lapels. I stiffened the whole front edge with a linen canvas interlining that I stitched in to the silk taffeta lining using a handy zigzag stitch as shown here by the awesome Drunk Tailor. I also made facings for the lapels on the other side.
The stand up collar is stiffened with linen canvas attached by pad stitching.
Like the Costume Close-Up coat, I stitched the lining and wool pieces together separately using back stitches. Then I sewed the layers together around the edges together with running stitches. And because random leftover fabric linings in 18th century garments makes me happy, I did that for this jacket too.
The cuffs have a placket opening.
The waistcoat is just two layers of duchess silk satin, seam allowances turned down and stitched together with running stitches, flat felled in to a one layer linen back with lacing.
I got the idea from the Diary of a Mantua Maker and her riding habit waistcoat.
For the hat I made a buckram frame with a wired brim.
I covered it with black duchess silk satin and striped silk taffeta. Crown lining is of peach silk taffeta.
