gwendolyngrey: (greater things)
 Sometimes when I look at my slow progress on personal projects, it's easy to forget that I actually DO sew for eight hours a day.  Up 'til very recently I was still in a three-month 'training' process at work, and it was only about two weeks ago that it ended and I became a regular member of the team.

This means that I am finally doing actual production instead of just daily maintenance, alteration, and finishing!  As a tailor (stitcher, really), I don't get to cut at all (sad face), but being able to sew entire garments is SO refreshing after three months of bits and pieces!  Of course, we all have to do a certain amount of daily maintenance and repair every day, but at least for half of the day things get interesting. ;)

And this past week I made my first military coat!

Fife and Drum Coat


Fife and Drum Coat

It's for a member of the Fife and Drum senior corp... so it had to be made as sturdily as possible so that it can stand up to regular wear by a teenage boy. 
 
Next up on my assignment rack is a livery coat with lots and lots of silver trim!
