The Wool Pelisse

I think this is one of my best creations.. A while ago I had a customer come to me with a request for a green wool pelisse. After going back and forth over details we decided on a design with black trim. When it was complete the design just didn't "pop" it looked rather simple, it just wasn't quite what she was looking for; so back to the drawing board and I did the trim in gold. I decided to go a step further with the design as well(now that I had some practice). After, many months it was complete!


Isn't it lovely?! I am so glad she was willing to wait and pursue a more perfect design.
Good historical costuming can't be done over night, it takes weeks and sometimes months
