Ahoy indeed. I guess making an 18th century frock coat qualifies as an Uber We Sew Retro project.
As this coat is not for Halloween but for a real swashbuckling spectacle, I had to to a great deal of scheming to make it solid which I have talked about at length on my blog if you are interested in this sort of thing.
Note to the Editors : I love the new digs, keep up the good work! Thank you so much for taking over.
