Made the pattern and cut linen lining pieces for bodice part.

I apologise for the lack of pictures, they will be added when I have time after Raglan.

01/09/2006

Cut interlining out of gray linen and cover pieces out of red wool. Seamed, hemmed and put finishing touches to the lining of the bodice.

02/09/2006

Attached the red wool shell to the lining and attached half of the plum stripe. Had to modify the armholes.

03/09/2006

Finished the bodice. Cut all the layers of the breast band and put the slits in. I might have to rework them, though.

04/09/2006

Redid the slits in the breast band. Finished it, decided that it wasn't good enough and decided to buy some purple silk thread to finish the slits properly.

05/09/2006

Fixed the slits in the breast band. Finished it, this time hopefully permanently. Developed a sleeve pattern and cut lining pieces for both sleeves and one wool piece. It remains to be seen if it works.

It didn't work, I had to rework the sleeve. The top part of the sleeve was too wide. I cut the other wool piece and sewed it. Pinned the lining to the top half of the sleeve and decided to call it quits at midnight.

07/09/2006

Finished the sleeves and attached them. The doublet is finished.
