The Caraco Jacket

Slowly moving forward on the 1700’s caraco jacket.  I completed the skirt and cut out the front pieces in muslin.  I am not sure what I am going to line the jacket with….I think I have enough of the main fabric to do a self-lining, but we shall see.  I am so far quite please with the overall look.  This week I will finish cutting out the back part along with the sleeves.  The pleating of the jacket seems to not make sense…so I will have to play around with it until it does!  Here are a few pictures.



DSC01182I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season and are taking time to enjoy the little things amidst all the fun craziness that Christmas (or what ever holiday you are celebrating) can bring!  I am going to an ugly sweater Christmas party tonight…and let me tell you that I have a found the perfect sweater for this party! 🙂  Can’t wait!

Have a great week everyone!
