Linen doublet front with linen trim braid, repro of a model popular circa 1630s. Threadworked silk buttons, with waked linen buttonholes or fingerloop braid silk laces. The doublet has been made by Angela of Peggy's Necessities, but buttons, lacing, eyelets and buttonholes are my own - loving every minute of it!
Detail button, 3-piece suit, Europe, circa 1790, altered circa 1805. Coat and breeches: purple silk plain taffeta with sequins and metallic-thread embroidery; waistcoat: pale yellow silk satin with sequins and metallic-thread embroidery.
