Green Doublet progress

Green Doublet - Beaded (Breadth)

This project was made from various upholstery weight fabrics. There is some edge work done with gold thread for accent. There are also some bronze colored glass beads sewn onto the fabric. While the pattern is primarily based on Margo Anderson's pattern, I altered the shoulders by making set of looped fabric for the shoulder tabs instead of the typical wings that I've done into the past. As I often do in my projects, I complete a portion of it and find that I am not happy with the result. I then disassemble the garment… I had attached a set of wings to the doublet, but have sinced removed them. I haven't yet reapplied the new style of wings.

Here are some photos of the doublet in progress.
