Striking Adornations

The collar upgrade on the Cathedral Cape will be joined with a new level of decoration; using an alternating diamond-link shackle chain for a basis, I’ll be constructing weighty draperies in between strongly articulated ornamental buttons, whose centers I can embed with a rhinestone to be chosen from this limited selection.

Coat Lining

Black satin lining gracing the Marquis CoatFixed hemline going into individual layers.
In finishing the Marquis Coat we opted on handsewing the lining all the way against the fabric facing up until the second sideseam, where both layers continue in separate hemlines ensuring an unhindered, godet drop.

Stretchable Hem

Hemline finished with freshly ironed stretching border.
In finishing neck-, wrist- and hemline for the tightly fitting red raglan blouse I opted to use borders from strips of the same velveteen fabric, cut evenly along the stretch-direction, stitched onto the piece’s right side using a narrow zig-zag and finely fixed against the wrong side by a loosened hem-stitch, minimally constraining the elastic fibers, allowing the blouse to faultlessly expand over the broader hands, head and shoulders while putting it on.

The Proper Suitor

Sometimes the slightest detail can matter most into distinguishing what the most proper finish would be, especially when the design is already obtrusive in its own whereas adding even more to it would be less favorable as to searching a way of combining the currently present elements within needed trimming, which is why I am feeling utmost delighted to have found this little button showing rough matted edges around a polished glossy center, perfectly mimicking shading and shine of both the coat’s velvet base and cashmere pieces, forging an intelligible connection in fastening the garment’s central gilet-closure.

Resilient Support

Sewing in a strap of stretch fabric as an underlying layer for the Rider Vest to hold a second set of closure hooks, to be placed in between the, with the fold-lines conjoining, primary set of hooks, thus contra-pulling during movement, flexibly containing the gaps, making sure the vest stays leveled all throughout the night.
