Rene’s Red Doublet

Rene’s Red Doublet

Just a couple shots of a new doublet in the works. Well, it was new when I was making it… In May. It’s finished now, but I wanted to show the in-progress shots first, especially the attempt at a pad-stitched collar. I’m pretty happy with the way it came out; it added a lot of stability to the finished product.

This is my view today. New technique: pad stitching in the collar of a commission doublet. Rene's doublet is coming together.

Wait, it’s been how long?

Wait, it’s been how long?

Uh, so. It turns out that even when you’re super busy with projects and creating things, they don’t actually end up blogging themselves. I have a million things to share (some of which are huge surprises that not even the Facebook page has seen yet).

The most exciting recent thing that happened was that I was awarded the Iris of Merit, a grant-level A&S award (it’s the rainbow ribbon on my shoulder). I was completely not expecting it even a little bit, as you might be able to tell from the shocked, glazed grin. For the rest? It’s coming soon, and more regularly. I promise.
