Finished pelisse

 I was determined to finish the pelisse last night. I only had about an hour to work on it during the day, but when I came home from seeing Sister Act last night, I went straight into the sewing room to finish. 

I did a machined hem, with the cotton batting inside the bottom inch. I did two rows of stitching higher on the hem, too, to represent where a second padded row should be, but since it's not actually padded, it doesn't really show up. Maybe that's something I'll change in the future, but I doubt it. I also added my tassel/button trim at the CB, inspired by the extant one.

Wow, that looks amazing! I thought I was looking at an extant in someone's collection at first. ;) Love love love the color; it's so elegant. And I'm always a sucker for back-tassels!

Wow, thank you! It's funny - the silk was just stuff I had forgotten I had in the stash (I think it was a Home Fabrics remnant from a few years ago), but it exactly matches a bonnet I purchased a few months ago.
