Pink pelisse 1810 - revisited

Here is the cut of the back of my pink pelisse. Looking at Costume Parisien, I wanted to experiment with cutting a narrow back pattern. The trick is the grain of the fabric over the shoulders which needs to be slightly on the bias. Also there is a small amount of supression in the shoulder seam which is slightly curved.

Any time your name pops up on my blog list, it's like "Whooohoo!" - and I never hesitate to pay a visit to your beautiful, inspiring work.I like the snug fit of the pelisse - it looks wonderfully period. Stunning - as always!

Ditto what she said. I love the outfits you make and drool over the beautiful things you post. Your early 19c wardrobe is fabulous! Drool!!!
