And now for something completely different

I've just been given permission to post pictures of this commission, which was an unusual one. A fluffy, over the top tuxedo complete with built-in waistcoat and bow tie. This was for a festival a few weeks ago.

Bar the fact that I HATE working with faux fur, this was so much fun to make. I used an existing jacket and trousers to draft the pattern. I elongated everything, added a long tail to the jacket and lined the tail with even more lairy fabric. I drafted a built in waistcoat (to limit bulk) in the same fabric.

Honestly, nothing but a picture will do credit to this one.



I certainly don't think there are many people out there who could pull this off, but this guy absolutely rocks it!
