Guards Steampunk 3


I have finished working on the cuffs of my Irish Guards tunic.

First , I ladder stitched the button flap onto the cuff and sleeve outer layer .

This also involved ladder stitching a section of the outer sleeve seam.

I them turned the sleeve through and hand closed the lining.

Finally, I used my brass point to open holes within the false buttonholes and sewed on the small buttons that came with the tunic. I had to replace one that had got lost, but found a small Irish Guards button of the same size. As this was a 'gold' stay-bright, I opted to group three and one.

Now the cuffs are complete, I will move on to working on the epaulettes.

Until next time
