This is another project for the stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. It was challenging but so fun to make. I will admit that several times I squealed with delight as I added all the finishing accoutrements.
The buttons, epaulets, and gold trim are all replicas from the period. The gold trim is woven from metal fibers and it is gorgeous in person. The body is made from navy wool, with the contrast in the lapels and cuffs in a cream wool from B. Black and Sons (http://www.bblackandsons.com/). The plastron inside is made from horsehair and flannel.
