Continuing with 18th C Sewing

I'm working on a blue silk 1780s jacket right now. I've decided to hand sew it, because then I can work on it while watching TV. The pattern that I'm using is just the same base from my burgundy print cotton jacket, but with long sleeves. So far I've got the bodice stitched up and one sleeve in.
