Lined cloak with capelet used as a Victorian coat at Dickens Fair, ice skating and other Victorian wintry events.
Pattern: Butterick B5266. Pattern goes together well and has a nice look. Has modern shoulder seams instead of dropped shoulder seams, but that historical inaccuracy is hidden under capelet.
Red CoatRed cotton velveteen coat with heavier black polyster satin lining, black braid, and black buttons. Cotton velveteen stretches and not as easy to sew as a more tightly woven fabric.
Blue CoatBlue no wale cotton corderoy coat with navy blue polyester satin lining, white braid, and white buttons.
