And now to business. That's the first Thai Coat from the Sewing Workshop Patterns I made. Using some black/beige spiral brocade fabric. The pants are my second from the Trio pattern of the same company. This time made 2 sizes smaller. Seems their patterns generally run big. The fabric is a lovely charcoal gray/sage spiral print cotton sateen. The fingerless gloves are made with very stretchy black nylon knit using McCall's 7397 pattern.
and underneath it all...

It's an ivory burnout stretch velvet made into a shawl-like cardigan from Butterick 6065. I made the sleeves longer and lengthened the collar band. The top underneath is a self-drafted tee and made from a scrap of abstract nylon sheer knit.
