green velvet waistcoat, 1880.
I know it's not too good looking now, but it'll be ironed, then I'll hem it and do the buttonholes and buttons. Then I'll sew the coat and pants... I'm sure it'll look the part with the coat (it'll be an Ulster coat with a long cape sewn between the back and side back pieces). The final outfit will be worn with a bowler hat and a shirt with a shirt w/high collar)
