Fancy Pants are nearly done, time for the doublet.
So here are Tim's slops, nearly finished. They just need their eyelets, and they'll be complete.
There was a great deal of hand work in these. Lots of cartridge pleating, of course, but also all the flat lining, button-holes, and bias edging.
They are made of this really great wool which has a very high twill weave, and we thought would be super cool if the twill chevroned at the point where I was putting in the pockets.
Well that didn't work. My dear friend MaritaBeth pointed out that it wasn't working because I couldn't use the back side. Duh! I've been sick, and I will use that as the excuse. Of course I wasn't sick when I thought of the idea, but we will ignore that. This is one of the finished pockets. I hid them in the down side of the cartridge pleats so they wouldn't gap. Pretty cool.
This is one of the egs after I had finished the cartridge pleating.
There are plenty more pictures on Flickr, and I will add the in process to this later, when I have more time. Now I must sleep.
