This costume was quite a challenge in design for me, since it was for a faerie-themed fantasy costume party, but the wearer didn’t want to dress as a faerie. We finally decided he should dress as a sort of upper-class servant character. The coat is made of dark blue upholstery fabric, with cuffs and appliqué work of a decorative tapestry fabric. The puffy shoulders have an inset panel of the tapestry fabric. It is lined with mustard yellow cotton. I couldn’t find frog clasps that I thought were appropriate for this costume, so I made the ones on the front of the coat from gold cording. The shirt is made from cotton broadcloth, and has a jabot, which buttons behind the neck. The breeches are made from a woven chenille upholstery fabric, and fasten in front with a square flap closure.
