Lawrence Neville - final take!
Added Sep 19, 2011
I already posted a project called “Neville’s victorian ensemble, take 1” in which you could see this attire nearly finished but not very good pics! So, here are nicer ones!
Just a little reminder of the whole story behind it :
Here’s Lawrence Neville. As I said before I’m a huge fan of Nancy Pena’s work (@ La Bote Bulles) and I’m now working on men’s costumes! For Neville I’ve chosen to mix and match the decades, ‘cause the roll collar waistcoat is from a 1840 pattern and the frock coat from a 1880 pattern. But I liked the two together and who will really notice? ^^ I know… OK, next time I’ll try to be more historically accurate!
Well… Patterns are from “Mens Garments 1830-1900 A Guide to Pattern Cutting” and the fabric is vintage natural linen + black silk lining. The inspiration is from Nancy Pena’s “Tea Party” and “It is not a piece of cake”.
