So you remember my sketch from the other day?
Well this is what it was meant to be. A stylized paisley-ish crocodile and hook to adorn the cuff of the coat.
I am really loving my choice of gold satin. It looks shiny and expensive without being tacky. Well, as non-tacky as a bright red coat trimmed in fancy gold appliques could be.
A close up of the front of the coat and pockets.
It's close to being done! I have made a lot of progress as of Sunday afternoon. The lining is finished and waiting to be put in, the cuffs are ready to be attached so I will work on that next costume crew session.
