You are inspiring! This is lovely, as all your projects are. Thank you for sharing them. When you embroider on silk or satin, do you back your embroidery with linen or anything? What will you use for lining the coat?
Wishing you a (late) Happy Birthday!

Finally i can present to you the left finished side of the embroidered waistcoat after Gustav III's wedding suit.
It is embroidered with pipers silk floss and embellished with silver spangels, the smallest you can get.
There also are the 2 pocket flaps.
It has taken me months to make it.
You can notice in the big pictures, that i didnt embroider the places where the button holes are to be.
When this is completely finished ( the left pocket flap is not finished) i shall start to make the left jacket piece. This is the one wich is going to be embroidered with silk chenille.
I beg you to forgive the bad light in the pictures, but winter in Denmark is very dark.
The waistcoat is made of silk duchesse satin.
