Finishing touches

I decided this week that it's time to start on the jacket for the Victorian costume.  First of all, I needed to take my measurements whilst wearing the rest of Victorian costume.  It's amazing the difference it all makes, I am at least 3" wider once the chemise, corset, petticoat, skirt and overskirt are on despite the corset initially reducing my measurements! 

It was also an opportunity to put closures on both skirts; including the pretty vintage button that the 10 yr old found in the garden during her recent excavations.
