Double Breasted Vest

This is a vest I made and sold earlier this year.  The pattern is from Compaing and Devere's 1855 manual.  The fashion fabric is nice paisley upholstery fabric.  The lining is brown cotton sateen.  It is heavily padded and quilted in the chest and has suede lower front facings.  The buttons are bone covered in burgundy velvet, and the back belt closes with a japanned buckle. 

New caps!

Here are some sleeping caps I finished yesterday.  They're all up for sale on the Etsy page.

Here are some new braces I finished today.  They are built from Nick Sekela's Louisiana striped shirting over canvas with leather tabs and japaned buckles.
