Spanish Outer Coat

The new Spanish outer coat is almost done. It passed the drop test so it can be used for rapier. It is one layer of wool, one of linen. In the end, this will be an entire outfit consisting of shirt, doublet, hose (probably above the knee cloth hose), and some sort of pants. The idea is to make an entire rapier outfit by hand from the skin out, hopefully even shoes. I have one more sleeve to finish and put on. I made a temporary sleeve by machine which will later be taken off, taken apart and restitched by hand for use in other outfits. Pictures will be posted after Lillies.
