Green Jacket

A couple months ago, Isabella gave me this lovely little green jacket that she and her mother had found at the Williamsburg costume shop sale. It was a good fit, only needing a stomacher to be ready to wear. I found some green cotton that was a rough match for the brocade fabric of the jacket, and I think it will work once the jacket is laced, as then the slightly different color of the stomacher will not show so much. Plus I made a new petticoat out of some linen/cotton blend fabric. I need to decide if I want a new cap or hat to go with this.
