How About A Weskit To Go With That?

I'm not done yet. On the left you see the material I've picked out for another weskit. Again, it's satin jacquard to complement the coat on the right, but I'm hoping it doesn't overpower the look. On the other hand, a weskit I have with my 1700's blue satin jacket has intricately embroidered roses that catch many an eye. People always ask about it. That could count as overpowering.

The fabric came from Hancock -- and yes, I found it on sale. I bought 2.5 yards, thinking I would need it for such a long weskit. But I may still have a lot left over. Breeches anyone?

Stay tuned for the result...
