I just finished the matching tunic for my boyfriend's squire brother. The most beautiful blue linen! I machine stitched the main seams and hand finished them along with a silk lining at the neck. Hand sewing can be very relaxing while watching Jane Austen movies :-)
Here's a snapshot of the tunic with my tailoring assistants, they are so helpful! ;-)
A close-up of the neckline facing.
Now to mail it out to him!
