Elizabethan court suit round 1:

So my one good accomplishment on the suit over the weekend was the venetians. 

They pleated nicely into the waist band, the front fly closure was easy to set and is very secure and the material is so heavy they practically stand up on their own :) which means they are nice and puffy. 

The doublet came together okay, the fitting was time consuming and the material is hard to work with in small spaces because it is so heavy. 

But I managed to get it constructed and lined and I even boned the front pieces for extra structure. 

However there is still the slashing, sleeves and front closure . . .
