Enter the Footman

Here it is, very nearly in all its shining glory, the footman costume.

I have another pocket to add to the coat, and more buttons and button holes to sew than I care to count, but other than that (which I’ve successfully ignored for now) its finished.


  1. Ruth, this looks absolutely incredible! I'm so proud of you! Well done :D <3

  2. THAT IS AMAZING!!!!!! WOW....You have done a fantastic job. Its definitely a change from the kermit suit. lol. I can't wait for my hubby to get home so I can start working on his man suit. You've renewed my motivation!

  3. Lee manages to look quite rakish as a footman that the look you were going for?!
    Excellent job darling - it looks superb! <3 xx

  4. Thank you all :) I just want to click my fingers all the button holes will be done now, just those to go.
    Katy I look forward to seeing how your suit turns out. Mum, google has given me several different definitions of "rakish", which one were you aiming for?

  5. "Having or displaying a dashing, jaunty, or slightly disreputable quality or appearance."
    It's Lee's expression in the first photo that made me think he look rakish .......nothing to do with boats or hat angles! :) xx
