The Brazen Burgundian
Burgundy velvet and mink houppealande
I did two mock ups for the outfit, because I waned to focus on different aspects. For this outfit, I ws focused on getting the drape of the outfit right. Having the drape correct impacts how the pleats fall and how the neckline opens up on the shoulders.
I also used this outfit as an opportunity to take lots of photos on sewing fur, as it has a mink border on the hem, cuffs and collar.
Eventually I will have a full sewing diary for this outfit, but right now I am trying to overhaul most of the pages on the website, so I am providing pictures with some cursory explanations
This is the basic premise for the body construction of this houppeland:
The first drawing is based on the G63 garment and the second line drawinf is my own to illusstrate in a very basic sense how the garment is to be constructed.
