Something New In The Works- Continued

And to follow on to a previous post, as promised, here’s some more progress pictures of the circa 1899 jacket. 🙂

First sleeve attached. I had to re-do the cuff to shorten the sleeve length first.

Close-up of sleeve and sleeve head. Compared to many jacket-bodice designs, I opted for a little less structured look.

Sleeve head. Compared to mid-1890s styles, the sleeve heads have relatively little excess on top so they’re pretty restrained compared to earlier styles.

Sleeves attached, time to take a break.

There’s still a lot of work to do but at least the basic structural elements are in place. Stay tuned for more! 🙂
