Hey Guys!
Thought you might be interested in seeing a few pics of work in progress on various bits and pieces, mainly Jack, but other characters too.. Also out and about, anything in my life that involves putting on anything that has anything to do with piracy that is Razz Will add to this ongoing if I think its something you'll find interesting. Also, ask me if you want me to take a picture of anything in particular and post- work wise that is pirat 

Jack and co in the workroom Button10
Jack coat buttonholes being done, on my very fancy expensive domestic embroidery machine. These have to be done through the coat canvas, and before
the coat is put together. Very time consuming process! Due to the size of my embroidery frame, only three can really be done at a time, which means lining
it all up over and over again!

Jack and co in the workroom Patter10
Bepoke cut breeches pattern for one of my customers- I make a new one each time to a specific set of measurements- no grading up or grading down. It means your items will be even more personal to you.

Angelica concept costume in the making- main body mostly done, its accessories time!!

Jack and co in the workroom Onstan10
Always on the stand at home, decorating the stairs, or the office, sometimes even the kitchen! The baldric is made by Simon Newton btw, who supplies them, as well as belts, buttons and buckles..

hehe yes- new old! Its beautiful. I collect a lot of old sewing equipment- from rusty old shears, ivory and bone bodkins and point turners, rusty old machines! And I like to refurbish them all (or pay someone else a lot of money to do it for me!!) I now have a MASSIVE box of buttons too, old vintage tailoring ones.
No new shiny equipment for me Razz

Finished pocket and fall front- next step, back and waistband!

pocket in the process of being sewn..

Jack and co in the workroom Img_2219
Finished pocket from the inside.. (you can see the fusible on the other side before the pocket is done- I reinforce them in any parts where there is a bit of pressure on them, also
there is a 'fork lining', which is a bit of heavy siliecia stitched into the crotch of the breeches.

Jack and co in the workroom Img_2221
Back pleates done, side seams sewn up, and two piece waistband, reinforced with canvas and cotton silecia lining.. as you can see, I add extra seam allowance on the inside leg, and also on the side seams of the back, and the centre back. This means if you gain weight you can get them let out instead of having to buy another pair! Better safe then sorry Smile

Do you mean the concept one (like I've done), or the actual film used version? Estimating, the film used one I would say the coat would be round about £400 and the waistcoat £100- though I would ask you to supply the fabrics, as I haven't got a stock of Angelica fabrics.
