The customer who ordered this costume wanted a “governor-turned-pirate” sort of look. He wore this costume with a powdered wig and golden eye patch! The coat is made of woven jacquard with a dupioni silk liner in neutral beige. It has working pockets, decorated with buttoned flaps. The vest is heavy tapestry fabric, and I took great care to make both sides, as well as the back of it, symmetrical. The pants are made of ultra suede with silk lining, and the shirt is cotton. The removable jabot consists of six layers of hand-gathered lace, and buttons at the back of the neck. The wrists of the shirt are finished with lace to match the jabot, and button with the same buttons as the coat.
